According to Larry Brooks,Mike Sullivan was a bigger yeller and screamer than Tortorella. Bad cop. Worse bad cop.
Oh, and by the way. If Tortorella truly does intend to become a new man, then bringing Mike Sullivan to Vancouver with him as assistant coach isn’t likely to help the transformation process.
Truth is that Sullivan, who only reinforces Tortorella’s us-against-the-world mentality, had alienated more Rangers by the end than the head coach.
Sullivan joined Tortorella in Vancouver. Mike Gillis interviewed former Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan for the Canucks coaching job. Gulutzan is the other assistant on the Canucks staff. Someone hired Gulutzan.
