You can't honestly tell me Kotalik, Lisin, Anisimov, etc. are fans of Torts.
Vinny Lecavalier. Marty St. Louis. Vinny Prospal. Just a few players who admitted they couldn't stand Torts but respected him as a coach for his honesty and for making them better all around players.
Players don't always have to like their coaches. Sometimes players can get too comfortable with a coach, as was supposedly the reason why Renney was let go; for losing his players.
Sometimes you need a coach that will push/motivate players to perform beyond casual standards/accepted norms.
