Question about Torts?

Can you guys tell me when Torts was your coach, did he bench players and if so, whom did he bench? Thank you...

Paul ****ing Ranger got benched on a regular basis. Can't remember him doing it to anyone else. I remember one night he did it, the camera panned to Ranger and Torts had him by the collar screaming at him. It was funny as hell.

I think the easier question is who didn't he bench over the years. Certainly wasn't reserved when it came to that kind of motivation. Although I don't remember him ever benching Richards.

He benched everybody except Richards. He loved Richards so he was exempt but he benched Lecavalier and St.Louis several times.

He benched Khabibulin for game 5 (or 6?) of playoff series and played Grahame instead. He hoped Khabi would storm into office and demand to play. He did not and we lost and were knocked out. Khabi explained later: I am Russian! When coach says sit, I sit.

he benched Zherdev last night for one bad pass. And it's funny because our problems gay WAY beyond Zherdev, but he is the one getting benched because he doesnt speak English well enough to stand up for himself.
What about Drury?
What about Naslund?

And now apparently, him and Torts are in a feud. More reports about Zherdev being angry at practice

It took them shorter to fight than I expected.

The problem with Tortorella is not that he benched Vinny. It's he benched Vinny but players like Richards he would never dare to bench because he was his favorite.

Double standards apply.

He'd bench Roy whenever he decided to go nuts. Hollweg would probably never see the ice if he were still on the Rangers.
