(Since it won't make my newspaper) Tortorella: "I have my owner talking about the Stanley Cup. That's a bunch of bullsh!t."


:blink:

:giggle: I think?
What do you make of that?

Probably as in, it's too early to even be talking about the playoffs, let alone the Stanley Cup.

That'd be my guess

Gotta love that organization. They are already patting themselves on the back, 40 games from the playoffs. I think they're already planning the cup celebration.

Tortorella is an unprofessional idiot. When his teams lose, everyone hates him because of his antics. When he wins, everyone thinks his gritty style is genius.

What's funny is that Tortorella can't stand Avery, yet he is a coaching-world version of him.

Hate Tortorella all you want, the man can coach. He did a fine job with a lot of young players in Tampa with a couple of vets sprinkled in, and he's doing the same with the Rangers.

Which is why he was right to shoot down Dolan's premature talk of one.

I don't hate him at all, the man is simply as unprofessional as it gets. But again, "the man can coach" is something that is said about every coach during a winning season. Read some of the Rangers message boards from the past few years to hear what the fans thought of him when the team wasn't winning. Better yet, read some Tampa fan comments from the years after the cup win (which was miraculous in itself).

Not every coach that has a winning season has a Cup on their resume. Calling it a miracle is silly.

You guys can't have it both ways, you can't say the team stinks and is overachieving, then give the coach no credit for 'that'.

tortorella's unprofessionalness, if that's a word (and i don't think it is), rarely extends past the media. the water bottle incident was indeed as unprofessional as it gets, but i think he's a fine coach.

I go along with this
in fact there were a bunch of threads this year (and last year) by Rags fans saying Tort's is no good, he must go, he's not the right coach for NY etc, etc, etc........now that they're in first place everything has changed. Lets see what people are saying in April/May/June

I never said he's a bad coach, but I also don't think he's a great coach like some are saying he is. He's a decent coach, but that goes to sh!t when he has his temper tantrums and starts throwing dumb comments left and right. He is irritable and he has mood swings. There have been some problems between him and his players in the past (Avery the most obvious), and I'm sure it will only continue until he is eventually thrown out of New York. You only need to watch HBO's 24/7 this year to see how crazy he gets after every one of the opposition's goals. This is a coach who can ride a good (or streaky) team, but can't get more out of them when they aren't performing well, which in my opinion is the mark of a good coach. If you see what fans have to say about Tortorella any years other than this year, you'll hear the same.

Exactly. The Rangers are overperforming and sitting pretty at the top of the NHL and suddenly Tortorella is a genius. Please.

Dolon obviously loves him though.
It's a business thing. Success breeds forgiveness, and measures of success or failure are so obvious in sports that it kinda amplifies everything.

This kinda puts a different (similar?) spin on things:

Devils begin playoff drive, or 'sprint to the finish'

“I think the term I used is it’s a sprint here to the finish and we’re in that sprint part,” DeBoer said today. “Unless you’re one of the teams at the very top or the very bottom, the other 25 teams are all in that push to the finish line. I know it sounds early to be talking about it, but it’s not.”


It does sound awfully early to be talking about this. At least DeBoer is just talking about the importance of getting every point possible, though.

Rangers have a trip to Boston on Saturday afternoon. Don't ya think Dolan's quote might be up in the locker room of the Stanley Cup champs? I'm sure they'll be thrilled.
