Torts needs a grinding team with not much skill.

Would love to see him work for NBC Sports and they could just have Pierre McGuire interview him between the benches.

Best news I heard all day! This POS and his ancient coaching style needs to just go away. After the last 2 years I don't him being considerd for a coaching job in the near future. Maybe he can go work for the ASPCA!

While I thought Torts was great for the Rangers during his tenure, the Rangers needed the change. I knew torts would have a tough time in Vancouver, so I'm not shocked he only lasted a year. Having said that, torts is a great person and I hope he takes a step away from coaching for awhile. Good luck john!
