Torts doesn't burn Joe Thornton after Rangers are called soft

Joe Thornton, after tonight's loss to the Rangers:

"They were probably softest team we played on trip. We should have had these two points."

John Tortorella:

"Wonderful."

Oh my.

Wonderful? That's it? How disappointing.

Not really a burn, but I did find it funny.

I think you should rename this thread 'Tortorella just doesn't care at all'.

Thornton's trolling attempt failed.

How is that a burn on Thornton? If anything it was Thornton calling out the Rangers.

Wasn't it the HF consensus that Vancouver was the softest team in the league? Joe managed to lose to them as well.

On a night when they got their ***** handed to them? Odd timing, if you ask me (not a Rangers or Sharks fan either).

Yea. That same soft team was tied in hits during this game with San Jose. Wouldn't that mean San Jose is also soft?

He said it AFTER the game, how does anything in the game matter about him being burned by Torts? all he said was "wonderful" to his comment.

Not really a burn. I expected something a bit more inflammatory ( pun not intended).

Precisely - calling out your opponent for being "soft" after a game when they beat you handily seems ridiculous to me.

I am not disagreeing with that, I think the comment was stupid. Just saying that Torts didnt "burn him". I agree that Thornton looks bad with the comment, but not because Torts did anything.

Thornton is the only player in the NHL that wins even when he loses, victory in defeat.

Tortorella didn't burn him.

Tortorella was just being Tortorella: not caring what anybody outside the team says.

Well now. Thornton can't troll and Torts isn't mad apparently.
Everyone is happy, right? Right??
