In regards to not wanting him around the lockerroom, I would guess that Torts recognizes the importance of having a leader in the locker room, but it should be someone on the team stepping up and leading the room. It is far better for the young Rangers to develop their leadership abilities, then to have a temporary fix in Messier coming in and giving pep talks.
Well, it IS the Toronto Sun folks. Not exactly fullproof source material.

On the other hand, remembering how tense things were in the 2nd half, I don't think it was a big deal that Tortorella didn't want any kind of "distractions" from the outside...even if they were part of management.
