from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
There is not even an ounce of pleasure, gratification or satisfaction derived in this space from chronicling Tortorella’s professional demise. Our very public confrontations were the tip of an iceberg. So much more was unseen. I will share this: At the start of the 2012-13 season when I had a medical issue, Tortorella was kind, caring and compassionate. That holds more meaning than being professionally disrespected.
Something has gone terribly wrong with Tortorella as an NHL head coach. Being fired twice within 11 months should disabuse him of the notion that someone else was to blame. This is a man now clearly at a crossroads who requires time and counsel to get back on track as well as get back to the league.
I believe there is a place for him following a sabbatical, and I believe there will be an owner who reaches out to him, and I don’t think it would be out of the question for the as-yet-unknown Brooklyn owner to be that person, though that fellow might want to check first with John Tavares.
