i believe the players believed in torts and his system for most of his tenure here. i really do. torts is very persuasive and to their collective credit, the players bought into his system completely. they played hard for him and the roster was constructed to fit the torts system.
players usually will not squawk mid season. they play hockey, they do their jobs and they never stop believing. until the season ends....
exit interviews would have been entertaining this year to say the least.
when henrik lundqvist turns his back on you, in his walk year, you are toast
According to Expressen, Hank sent an e mail, to ny post, and denied strongly that he had something to do with the firing of Torts.
That was not his role, putting pressure on the front office, to fire a coach. He said that he had a great relationship with Tortella, and hes focus was on doing his best in the goal. And that Torts was challenging him in a positive way, to be able to do his job.
On a sidenote, do you guys believe the Rangers will bring back Zuccarello? And if so, will AV have a positive impact on him on and of the ice?
