Yes, Torts yells and does his best to be a grouch. But when all is said and done, he's a little old chihuahua who's all bark and no bite. How a bunch of young professional athletes can be so intimidated by a little old man like that is beyond me.
The best thing about this team was their guts and character on the ice. Why did it disappear in the dressing room?
Whether it's Tortorella or any other coach, I want to see players who have the balls to talk to their coach, to communicate, to do what's best for the team. Even if they would've fired the coaching staff no matter what, I want the players to stand up and express themselves.
I dont care who you are or how tough you think you are....hearing constant yelling n screaming gets tiresome n old after awhile... Nobody wants to hear from the drill sergeant n feel like their in basic training for 4+ years....after awhile your like..... Oh Is he screaming again....
