I think that could be a great hire, but I also think he’ll tire of it pretty quick and want to get back into coaching.

I thought Babcock was good, I assume Torts will provide the same element.

Torts has done this before with TSN, I enjoyed his analysis.

ESPN should hire Larry Brooks also, and give them their own unscripted segment. I would be entertained with that…. cheese

If he’s hired to be a Don Cherry-esque curmudgeon, I just want to watch to see him try.

Ima guessing Don Cherry was busy?

Torts could be a breathe of fresh air.

I imagine he has an out clause in his TV contract that if a team offers him a job, he can take it. See also, Burke, Brian.  cool smile

I’m all for Tortorella segment where he can roast players for stupid penalties like diving and coaches for undisciplined play like too-many-men line changes penalties.  He can be ESPN’s Don Cherry.

Oh boy.  Melrose and Tortorella on the same broadcast.

Oy…
