I brougth a few facts. You discounted them. How can I argue against that? Guess I'm wrong. Sather is easily accessable and a really pleasant guy.

A couple more losses in a row and Torts will be Renney Part Deux around here.

In the end, it always comes down to personnel, not who is standing behind the bench. Torts has more talent to work with so he better place them higher than Renney did last season or else he has failed. That is his sole job.

Personally, I hate his style of divisiveness and embarrassing his own players but if in the end it works, I won't care.

P.S. He should have kept his loudmouth closed in regards to the Dubinsky negotiations. It was none of his business and could only have a negative effect on Dubi, and more importantly on the team.

Its funny, with this vid Sather comes off as a dick but in the end the fault is really 50/50.

Sather was a jerk for responding with "piss off", he should have said, sorry buddy i'm on the phone.

But that guy seeing that he was on the phone, should have let him be.

I'm not saying to judge him by the video, I just typed in "Glen Sather" on youtube and this is what came up. I figured it would be more funny then taken seriously, anyway.

Ever since the 7 game win streak, the way that Torts has handled this team has been troubling to say the least. It all started with deciding to start Valiquette in what would have been a good barometer game against the Sharks. Surprise, Surprise, Vally plays a soft game and the Rangers lose a stinker. No reason to panic, right? Well apparently it was for Tortorella. Next thing you know, the effective first line is broken up, Prospal's playing center, Lisin is playing first line minute he doesnt deserve. All the while, Henrik is getting run with no retribution, and the team as a whole is playing like a bunch of pansies.

My main question is where are the folks that were so thrilled with Torts' hiring? ACCOUNTABILITY IS BACK!, SAFE IS DEATH=EXCITING HOCKEY! My ass. Mr. Macho talks a good game, but he has done little to back it up...benching guys for singular turnovers, but not doing much at all for the countless players that dont want to get their skirts dirty. And exciting hockey, for me anyway, is winning games. That 7 game win streak was exciting...the way that Torts had to make unnecessary changes to prove that this is his team and the subsequent tailspin is not exciting at all. Its actually quite frustrating that our head coach could be such an egomaniac/blowhard/bully/whatever you want to call it.
