    Tortorella tells Sharks' Thornton to 'just shut up'

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nhl/story/_/id/7178520/new-york-rangers-john-tortorella-tells-san-jose-sharks-joe-thornton-just-shut-up

    "It surprised me, and I've never heard a player say that," Tortorella told reporters after Tuesday's practice, according to the New York Daily News. "Joe's a heck of a player, but here's a player popping off about our team, and Joe hasn't won a god d--- thing in this league. He could go down as a player, being one of the better players in our league never to win anything. So what he should do is just shut up. It was uncalled for, it was classless, and I've never had it happen like that before."

    Suprised by this, to me it is out of character of Joe. Not sure what he felt he had to gain by saying this...Guaranteed this gets mentioned in Larry Brooks column this Sunday and he finds a way to hammer Torts...Also, guarantee somewhere KPD is is adding Torts to his Christmas card list.

    Presidents trophy, Art Ross and Hart aren't exactly nothing. Plenty of good players who never won the Stanley Cup.

    Tell you what, talk like that can be a precursor to running a player out of town. I'd love to give Jumbo Joe another shot here. Looch and Horton--instant 40 goal scorers on a line with the California boy!

    Scooter - True enough.  Pat Lafontainne, Gil Perreault, Phil Housley, Peter Stastny, Marcel Dionne, Pierre Turgeon, Mike Gartner, Dale Hawerchuk and Adam Oates are among them.  Still, there must not be any mirrors at Thornton's house.

    RHO, I saw the post-game interview and when I heard Joe say it I had to do a double-take. What possible good can come from Thornton calling out the NYR, a team they don't play often enough to develop a rivalry? It'd be different if he says it about the Wings or Ducks but the NYR? All I could think was where are you going with this Joe? Bob McKenzie just reported that Doug Wilson has already contacted Sather in an attempt to smooth things over. Joe is a talented hockey player but not a good thinker.

    dez - I'd expect to hear those words come from, say, Carcillo's mouth but not Thornton's.  Guess there's a first time for everything.  BTW, I'm digging your cool new avatar, buddy.  Nice one!

    Good post.  Joe is normally a pretty happy go lucky dude.  I was surprised as well.

    I'm not because Joe made a similar DOOPID statement after Chara drove Pacioretty into the boards. "Boston seems to get all the calls don't they ?" Duh...

    San, I can at least make some sense of his bitterness towards the Bruins (even if I don't agree with it) but this latest statement is right out of left field.

    Out of character for Joe?

    I don't think so! Just ask Mike Knuble.

    This is just like Joe. He just doesn't think. For a ppg player over the last 5 or so years he has to be the softest player I have ever seen during that span. I'll take him seriously when he can lead a team to a cup.

    I-like-hockey, Let me know when you both like AND understand hockey. Dez never will, and I believe you have little hope as well. I'll continue to enjoy the other posters with some intellect however. You and Dez can enjoy the playpen together, as you so often do. Maybe you can help him with his wayback machine. Goodnight children. Tuck each other in now ; - )

    What are you going on about now Boom-Boom? Another stinky diaper got you down? Isn't there a Cactus thread somewhere you should be agreeing with? You're still 1 good post away from catching up to your soul-mate. Poor Boom-Boom.......maybe if you start another thread about which 4th liner you think Boston should trade for in order to save their season............Aw, forget it! I can smell your next post already.

    Dez, hop on your wayback machine after you climb out of the crib. I'm sure you can entertain yourself all day digging up old posts. Than, after your bottle feeding and some Gerber plums, play on the swings with I-Like-But-Don't-Quite-Understand-hockey. Have a good time with him, and play nice out there ; - )

    Yeah I really dont understand hockey. I mean I should be calling for the team to acquire Chuck Kobasew or Miro Satan. Better yet why not bring back Jason Arnott im sure he could be that 6'+ center this team needs I bet.

    Wait my its because my hockey knowledge isn't soley consisted of current and ex bruins players. Unlike your puny brain I generally follow most of whats going on around the league and I dont make assanine statements like "Id love to have Joe Thorton back, he'd make Lucic and Horton 40 goal scorers".....

    Do you even think about how stupid you sound? No just be quite and back to the kids corner for you. Maybe you should go back to commenting on TSN those posters seem to more to your level.
