Sorry, I love Johnny T, check out his tourist bit on the you tubes.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good jerk, but not all the time
That's the thing and I don't want to go down the Tortorella road again but it seems intertwined with Vigneault for the time being, but as much as I love Torts and the culture he created, he could have handled certain things better for sure. However, I liken him to Coughlin's situation. Tom after speaking to his family and the players, he changed his ways to a degree. He instituted the player leadership roles, was less ornery with the media, etc. If it went down as it appears to have (from reports and Torts interviews), Torts didn't have that luxury. The players never approached him about their issues. He certainly could have changed certain things on his own. However, would think that the coach who was less than a year removed from ECF berth and team's best season in 16 seasons would be afforded that chance from management and the players. Coughlin got that chance before winning his first Super Bowl.
