I believe it was the season opener of the 02-03 season, everyone was excited about the season, there was a buz at MSG. As usual, we the fans showed up ready to go.

Jim Brewer was a special guest in the booth.

Everyone is ready to go.

The puck drops with eager anticipation.

No Ranger showed up to play hockey. The flattest, most lifeless, pathetic joke i can remember.

Buzzer sounds for the end of the first period. Boos. Loud boos. Jim Brewer ripping the team a new one on live tv. He's a comedian.

Yeah, anyone who went through the garbage days between 98-2004 wouodn't argue with Tortorella's mild results. He had one good year. A great year for the Rangers that I'm thankful for. That was two seasons ago now. His Cup was 10 years ago now.

He had no willingness to adapt to what the game being played dictated. He bullied his players. He had to go. Plain and simple.

I personally don't care what Asham says, because he is a garbage hockey player by NHL standards. And hopefully he's off the roster in October and stays off the roster indefinitely.

But Tortorella lost it. He had to go.
