It isn't megalomania and it's not ego. It's good off ice coaching. There are plenty of things with him I'm unsatisfied with. This is one thing I'm fine on.
Good point, I agree.

This team needs media attention like Lindsay Lohan needs cocaine...takes the pressure away just a little bit, definitely can help calm down the team. It draws attention away from them, and it makes the writers/fans focus on attacking Tortorella rather than his struggling team.
