I'm not sure what that has to do with Tortorella. His job is SUPPOSED to be getting the most out of what he's got, not critique his production per dollar and cry to management that he doesn't want him on the team any more.

Thus far, all the moves that were on behalf of Tortorella leave a lot to be desired, so pardon me if I'm hardly doing back flips over another "Torts guy" makeover and $6.5M of UFA $ in Sather's hot little hand.
