Tortorella defends Johnny Maclean

Not sure this is thread worthy, but anyway I found this pretty funny. Is Tortorella preparing the ground for an eventual 1st round against Tampa?

Tortorella's unsolicited support of MacLean, who was replaced by Jacques Lemaire on Dec. 23 with the Devils at 9-22-2, came in the wake of comments from Lightning coach Guy Boucher, who was quoted last week saying: "I think if Jacques had been there since the beginning, they would be [up] there again."

"This is a tough enough job. Stay in your own business. Coach your own team," Tortorella said in reference to Boucher, in his first year behind an NHL bench. "Don't shoot your mouth off about another situation you don't know anything about.
