Class or lack thereof, the man says what he wants and could care less what you think of him.
Somewhat refreshing in this day & age.

+19, MoWings. Torts is not bagging Brad Richards. He’s sitting him so that Brad can get his head straight and get back to basics. There’s nothing wrong with that.

I generally dislike Tortorella, but anybody who tells the sporting press to kiss his ass is okay.

Torts is gone after this season, and this move is to just shine a light on his underperforming stars so he can let the world know it wasn’t his fault.  Giving him credit for treating the press like an *#$%@& is asinine. There’s a right way to treat people and Torts doesn’t really get any worse treatment than every other coach, and most of them don’t resort to acting like a petulant toddler when their failures are questioned.

You would be correct sir. It’s in their contracts to speak with the press. They get paid to do this. He’s the only one that acts like a child every dammnn time in these situations…... and they even won the game in OT.

Grow up Torts…... maybe there’s a reason your team isn’t responding anymore. Maybe when they are spoken to like little children enough times, they start to tune you out. I know I did.

And his career is winding down. He’s chopped liver. Seeeee Ya!

Yep, it’s soooo refreshing. If Babs said a player stinks during the playoffs, people would want his head on a pike. But Torts does crap like that and he’s like a fresh breeze on a sunny day. Give me a break. I wasn’t even referring to what he was saying about Richards. I was referring to his overall demeanor. So, yeah, Torts is refreshing if you find the smell of garbage refreshing.
