Torts has made media and fans his bi***. He talks tough and many are obviously afraid of him. Renney had 50% the roster and still wouldnt have lasted with Torts lack of results. I mean Renney had some really weak rosters (Dawes, Gomez, Prucha, Naslund, Drury on top lines), but was trashed for only winning 2-1. We hit alot more with Renney, but Torts is never called out for icing the least physically team -- by a wide margin -- in the POs. He talks tough, all that matters.

The key to coach in NY = intimidate media.
I still don't get how a guy who is barely 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds and a barks like a little chihuahua can intimidate the media, especially a room for of New Yorkers.

Hell, little Larry Brooks stood toe to toe with him a few years back and all Torts could do was drop a few F-bombs.
