Bah, that sucks, they never would've won anything with him. Hopefully they hire Vigneault, he's a fvcking moron too.

Buh bye Torts.

 

But yeah, like MD said, he was really holding that team back, shame to see him leave.  Hopefully the next coach fvcks things up just as badly.

people tend to sh!t on this guy and make fun when his predictions doesnt happen and ignore it when he's right (which he's been quite a few times) but Incarceratedbob broke that news before anyone else.

Same. I'm actually surprised though, maybe this has something to do with Lundqvist's hesitation about signing long-term?

That's what Max Herman just tweeted. "Lundqvist's comments changed everything".

That wouldn't shock me at all. Lundqvist might've said to Sather 'its him or me'.

Tortorella is an excellent head coach and to be quite honest, if DeBoer ever departs, I would love no one other than Torts coaching the Devils.  He reminds me of a mix between Pat Burns and Jacques Lemaire.  He just has to tone down his press conference antics a bit.

Incarcerated Bob takes educated guesses. We were talking about Torts being fired weeks ago. There was a whole thread on it.  Bob just says 'confirmed' and people think he's a genius.

It would be a great move for them. I hope they don't hire him.

Tortorella did some things right, others wrong, but Lundqvist basically always bailed him out - when you've got a world-class goaltender it's difficult to get fired.  Hoping this means Ruff and not Vigneault.

Don't get that at all.  Torts has a lot to do with Lunqvist's recent success.

I would think that a shot blocking and collapse around the net strategy would help the goalie.

They don't score any goals though, and I think that's why Lundqvist may have spoken up. I think he's had enough of Tortorella's system.

I assume, since Lundqvist wanted Torts gone, that Lundqvist feels like his save percentage will stay pretty constant and since Lundqvist has one of the best save percentages then the Rangers should play a system that generates the greatest number of shots for both teams instead of a system that generates the least number of shots for both teams.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

It's hard to look at how the Rangers played in the playoffs and think 'this is a team that can win'.  Lundqvist again had a .934 SV% and the team went 5-7.  He had a .931 last year and the Rangers went 10-10.  It's hard to attribute any of Lundqvist's success to Tortorella - he did just fine under Renney, too.

no he called it litteraly like 5 minutes before the official news broke out, not something he threw out there months ago

 

he announced it, then KathyStrang reported it and everyone re-tweeted her
