I suppose that comment could be taken two ways. The way I understand it is that Torts needs to understand everyone's strengths and then adapt his strategies to suit their abilities/style of play.

I don't think it meant, "Torts better adapt to how we want to play the game."

The tail doesn't wag the dog. If the players think they're going to run things, they're in for a hell of a rude awakening with Torts in the dressing room.

Canucks' Tortorella promises to improve media relationship

the highest rated comment for the article is:

"Immediately Torts becomes the toughest guy on the team."


This is basically what everyone else outside of vancouver thinks of the canucks.. .. we're soft.

Just watched the Q&A with Torts and I agree the new girl replacing Kristin Reid for Canucks media is TERRIBLE... Not only her demeanor but the questions she asked were just pointless.

Good for Kristen for her new position at Sportsnet, she deserved it she was great on CanucksTV.

I know, I was being facetious with the quote.. on its own it looks pretty scary but we get what he's saying.

Here's the rest of it from the TSN article

"(He's) an intense guy and very detailed and wants his players to play hard," said Kesler. "That's what I like about him. He's going to hold us accountable. And if we're not, we're not going to play."

But Kesler suggested Tortorella will not necessarily coach the same way that he has in the past.

"He's going to adapt once he figures us out," said Kesler.

shot blocking just shows how much you want to win games. Game 6 chicago had almost 3-4x as much compare to Boston

When Lu's captaincy was given away, Lu performed better almost immediately being able to focus more on his game.

I expect that with a greater leadership presence in the room via Torts, the Sedins and the rest of the core may also see some lightening of their distractions and be able to concentrate on their game. I see the Sedins' blessing of Torts as them saying that they are a bit tired of the way the leadership was happening internally within the players themselves. AV wasn't about to set that straight, so now they have somebody that can and will, and can get them all playing together again. It doesn't mean they aren't leaders anymore though, they just needed something different to rally everybody together. "You know what to do" only works so many times

Although Edler is overrated.. Letang, Yandle and Visnovsky were drafted around the same position as Edler. Draft position doesn't mean much, Patrick White anyone?

Edler was a steal in that draft. If we re-do it knowing what we know now, he'd go in the top 10.

Torts!!!!!
That's awesome news, especially after hearing his first series of interviews.

On a side note, this is what happens when you lose the Stanley Cup in 6 games.



Poor Chara.


The look on his face is sadder than sad Keanu Reeves.

so what exactly is the rationale/logic behind each team being limited to 2 buyouts per year? seems to me like an arbitrary restriction

From the look on his face, I'd say he's pretty sad. He's not even enjoying his ride on the Rowdy Rooster. I wonder what happened to make him so sad?



lol!


He took his kids there after the game 6 loss. If you think about it, he would have been playing the final game, but instead he was at the park with the family. He was actually spotted at "Canobie Lake Park", which is a couple hours away from Boston.



So hilarious.

I agree.

Edler has all the qualities to be a great defenseman. Rick Bowness said it before, he has the size, skill, skating ability, and concept of being great. He just needs to wake the fuck up to play.

Remember last season after he signed the extension, he scored like 2 goals in the first game and 8 points in 10 games?

Hopefully Torts is there and wakes him up.
