    Torts is a joke...

    This guy is a piece or work.  Best thing that will come from this series is seeing this guy get fired after the B's dispense with the Rangers.  Throwing his own player under the bus and running over him several times to the national media.  Even the king of smugness, Mike Millbury cound'nt believe he said what he did.  Constantly whining and cursing out the ref's during games.  Love to see him get what he deserves.  Can't stomach looking at him with that constant smirk...  Be gone Tortorella!!

     

    Because he stinks on the power play,” Tortorella said after the Rangers practised Saturday. “I don’t know why. I wish I could play him on the power play. Every time I put him on, he stinks.”

    Thus began an extended, entertaining exchange between Tortorella and reporters on Hagelin’s absence from the power play, with Tortorella frequently employing the word “stinks.”

    “I think he’s too quick,” Tortorella said when asked what Hagelin does wrong on the power play. “I think he’s a jitterbug and he screws it up. But I may use him -- I’d love to. And I’m not trying to be a smart aleck. He stinks on the power play every time I put him on there.”

    No, but have you ever publicly humiliated someone and have it all work out wonderful in the end?

    I'm not much of a Torts fan either, but I think in context, he's going far enough over the top...he's really not publicly humiliating Hagelin.  He's not saying he's a stinky hockey player, Tortorella is kind of implying the reality is bizarre.  In an odd sort of way, he's kind of speaking of Hag's positives overall.
    Just my opinion.  I usually find the subleties more cutting and dirty.

    It's his way of saying " I don't really have an answer for the Bruins ". Class has never been the Fonz's strong suit .

    I agree.  He said several times that he thinks he is a great player and and for some strange reason he does not work out good on the PP.  Peopele are taking this out of context.

    Never liked the guys coaching style. I can appreciate being passionate and fired up, but to me, this guy is waaaaaaaaaaaaay over the top, and mostly to the down side.

    I agree w/ you but he went out his way to humiliate his own player. Hey John how about you call your self out for your crappy PP, your the head coach and it's your system.

    torts does stir up the pea patch. I'm sure there are other teams who wish he was their coach. He's lighting Hagelin's backside, and looking for more, which Hagelin showed in game 2. The message also goes out to other Ranger players that they need to wake up.

    trick question, I said how many time have *you* ever...

    yes, it works, but I don't believe it's a good strategy to be calling out guys like that publicly.

    Yes, all the time.  I have been in sales for 20 years and the best way to motivate many reps is to call them out publicly, among the group, in order to gain additional accountibility.  Some flourish and some disappear.  Depends on the person.  My guess is Hagelin is tough enough to handle it.

    I LOVE Torts! I think he talks this way to protect his players. Cherry did the same thing & it worked. Torts uses the media to bring the attention to him, because he makes some great TV & quotes. The media HAVE TO speak to him. I think this is his way to take the focus off of the players good, or bad performance's to help them not having to worry about what the media is saying. They're too busy quoting him to worry about the team. Torts didn't humilate anyone & didn't throw anyone under the bus. Totally taken out of context.

    Tortorella is an idiot. More coaches need to be hard on their players when they're underperforming but criticism has to constructive and NEVER open in the public domain. This guy is one obnoxious demotivator.

    Win or lose, I'll still think Torts is a D ick and it wont change the fact that he is. But then again, if I were a coach, Id probably be one too toward the press. The questions some of these reporters ask are just plain stupid. But, as someone said before, he doesnt have an answer for anything, especially the Bruins. The B's are a better team and the only chance the Rangers have, is if Lundqvist picks up his game and the B's keep handing the Rangers scoring chances.

    Sales reps = salary commission and padded expense accounts, boozing and complaining if they have to downgrade their hotels.

    software guys = salary, no appreciation, where the rubber hits the road and where the real work gets down.
