For some reason, the New York Rangers fired head coach John Tortorella after a four game sweep by the Boston Bruins. Oh, it wasn’t a four game sweep? The Bruins decided to toy with the Rangers like a big cat with a mouse in its claws. The Bruins thankfully swept the Penguins out of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference finals, sending Sid the Kid off to whine about something else.
For some reason, this blog missed out on the Tortorella firing and the great humor he’s provided over the years. Of course, this blog missed a lot of hockey this year. Our boycott of that sport for its unrelenting labor/management issues was stringent.
To honor the master of the hockey coach interview, we figure we’d work with his Top 10 comments as provided by ESPN. Enjoy. Torts won’t be unemployed for long.
