Just like it seems he had no idea what was going on with his own team during the season.
None of that absolves Tortorella's awful coaching performance this year.
Quite honestly, it's pretty amazing that despite both of those things, we still made it to the 2nd round.
Torts had input on the roster moves. It's not like Sather above Tort's head and forced a player onto him.
On a side note, watching the Torts press conference from earlier, I would not like what I'm hearing from him if I'm a Canucks fan. He sounds very unsure of himself.
