His reply last night, especially considering they won the game, was perfect.
To turn around the next day and start going off is stupid and just as classless as Thornton's original comment
you contradicted yourself actually. you ARE saying it's wrong by stating that it was stupid and classless!
When they first told him about Thorton's comments after the game, wonderful was his initial response, because he was boiling inside...
After a day to think about it, Thorton's statement deserved a response that was more fitting by a coach who's team was insulted by
a high profile star captain in the sport.
Tortorella is a man of honor. when you go outside the honor code, "all bets are off". I love it when people want to "chain you to ethics' while they proceed to abide by their own rules.
Thorton is a notorious crybaby and showed poor sportsmanship by going to the media with a comment like that. Tortorella merely reminded him that went outside the realm of acceptability.
