But of course, its one incident this year, if he does it again then Larry would have a point.

If it were Avery would Torts have reacted the same way?
Please. Del Zotto should have kept his ****ing mouth shut. Tortorella was right to berate him. It will make him a better player in the long run. Tortorella has given Del Zotto tons of ice time and a lot of respect for a 19 year old kid.

Tough love is sometimes the best form of love. I would have done the same thing that Tortorella did.
