Jortikka has never shyed away from speaking his mind. At the Calgay Olympics, Canada had asked to measure a Finnish player's stick(don't recall how the call went) during the game. Finland won and after the game at the hallways, Jortikka (assistant coach for team Finland) yelled at Dave King "You ****ing loser!".
And when things don't go his team's way, he lets it known quite vocally. His own players can expect to be publicly ridiculed (look up Joni Ortio's impression of him at Youtube), usually in a very humorous way.
