you must be referring to mario.. the queen of whining ...

its no coincidence 1 team got called out twice in a week and has had run ins with multiple teams over the past 2 years and the nhl always turns the other way for them, but not the team they wronged...

the media is about to blow this up big time..

@StapeNewsday: Now, Tortorella questions the NHL's integrity in regards to a dirty Pens hit, and #NYR coach is fined $20K. Seems inconsistent to me.

This is my biggest problem with the NHL.

Damn straight.

His continual *****ing and moaning (always after a loss, never after a win) diminishes his points, whether they have merit or not.

Wow, the light bulb just went on in my head. The 100k is THE reason El Cheapo Wango didn't bring back Konopka or carried a legitimate enforcer on the squad all season. The guy is more affraid of getting fined then protecting his players. Scrooge.

The NHL should love stuff like this. If you want to get people interested in watching hockey, you need "drama" behind the game.

All that being said he shouldn't have got fined for voicing his honest opinion. Does the NHL want people to give the most vanilla answers?

FACT: The isles rangers and flyers all have had a player injured by a penguin player via a dirty play.. each team spoke out and fought back against it, and all 3 times, the pens were the ones given the get out of jail free card while all 3 other teams were punished for protecting their team..

He's absolutely right. Screw the Penguins and their double standards. We can hurt you but you can't hurt us because we've had at least one superstar for the last 30 years.

Malkin seems to be the far dirtier player, but Crosby seems to be the bigger whiner

Agree that it's all matter of gamesmanship with Tortorella.

I didn't think he should be fined $20k, but you wonder with the Saints scandal going on, the NHL is taking a hard stance due to the comment about what would happen if the Rangers went after Crosby & Malkin.

I understand that the NHL has double standards, but there shouldn't be and they shouldn't be allowed to stand either. Its the double standard that created Fight Night on Long Island last year.

Also I'm not crying. Stop acting like a baby. The league should correct their flaws, not keep engaging in them. We're having an adult conversation here.

Yeah I agree, but **** both Torts and the Penguins.

Pretty much what I said when Zenon wasn't brought back. He cost the Wang big money. Now we have a team that could win a "Who is the biggest Mary" competition.

I have watched some non-Islander related Pittsburgh games this year. They throw plenty of cheap shots. Kunitz, Dupuis, and Tangredi always seem to be doing something dirty on the ice. I won't even mention Cooke. Yet they are always crying about stuff done to them. Torts may be self serving with his rant, that is true, but the fact is he is still right. Mario can throw a very unmanly "I am going to take my ball and go home" hissy and the league bends over and takes it. No one else can though, and they seem to go out of their way to slap our club even before a word is said.

Watching Crosby claim not to be a winer.... lol x 100. You can't make this stuff up folks.

I can't believe Tortarella got banged 20K for that. I respect his honesty, and he's absolutely right. Orpik is a *****. I never liked him. And Tortarella is right, from the ownership, through the broadcast booth, to the ice, Pittsburgh is THE whiniest!

Honesty like this should be commended, not punished.

I agree the hit was dirty and agree with the nhl passing out the fine. They are very touchy about what you say in the media. Will always be...torts saying what he said wasnt the most clever move. He was asking for it.
If I was an NHL coach, I'd be in such severe debt.
