Quote: John Tortorella Doesn’t Worry About Brad Richards

“He wants this challenge of dealing with it and everything that comes with the city,” Tortorella said. “It’s a great city, it’s a great sports town, there are different pressures coming here, there’s accountability that comes into play when you come into a big market like this – that’s why Brad Richards is Brad Richards. He wants this. And that’s why we want him.”

“We want him to mentor some of our young kids through some tough times on and off the ice,” Tortorella said. “This is a great situation for Richie. I don’t worry about him. I think he’s going to settle other people down.”
