As far as flying off the handle goes, I think Torts has been kind of tame behind the bench throughout this year's playoffs

I think Lindy Ruff with the Rangers would be a total mismatch of personalities (say, Rudy Tomjonavich to the Lakers).  Lindy's spent most of his life playing and coaching one small-market team, I can't see him going to a big market with all the media in the world and being successful.  I'm more worried about him going to Minnesota than NY really lol.

 

The media may be an issue, and it may not. But that team fits Ruff very well. We can always hope that Dolan has a say, and gives Torts some Isiah Thomas-like chances to bury himself.

He'll be fired once the sweet is complete, I'll bet.  Not mid-series though.

I know it's sacrilege, but as a hockey person I actually like Torts as a coach.

 

I think Torts has done a very good job in his tenure with the Rags.   Sather killed the team early the year, with the Nash deal, trading Rupp, not signing Prust.  Sather redeemed some with the Gaborik deal, but Tort's doesn't have a lot of talent or depth, but they are in second round (for now).

 

Richards is done in New York, and they will be a better team with Torts at the helm.

Let's see if torts gets to speak after the loss or if sather steps in Lol. Rags mailed this in so bad the bruins can't believe they get half the plays they do. They hesitate thinking a rag will get there but no interest from the blue sh!ts

I cant believe how mellow he's been during the post game pressers, he's definitely been to therapy or something

The Rags aren't playing that bad, so Torts isn't panicking.

Last game. They've been pretty terrible and heartless the games prior, especially Game 3 on home ice....
