The only thing John Tortorella can do wrong now from here is apologizing for what he said. You don't apologize for speaking the truth. And especially when 'the truth' is supported by factual evidence.
a) No practical purpose for apologizing (i.e., the NHL is not going to reduce the ridiculous fine.)
b) What is he going to apologize for anyway? Can anyone even give a legitimate argument for what he did wrong? (And if you cite the league wide reputation speech [i.e., standing up for themselves blah blah or whatever], the reply is that Brooks Orpik delivering a dirty 'knee on knee hit' with no discipline as a result, affects that very 'image'.
c) John Tortorella
feels this way. What he truly feels is supported by factual evidence.
So please. Do not apologize. It's getting ridiculous to see the right thing being done (i.e., calling out a hypocritical and dirty organization) only to have everything being taken away by 'political-correctness' and 'image'.
