The same way Lundqvist is one of the most underrated stars in the city I think Torts is one of the most underrated coaches. Not in the sense of like X’s and O’s and that kinda shit. Does that even exist in hockey? Are there timeouts? Are their plays? Don’t know, don’t care. All I know is that this dude does not give a fuck about anything or anyone outside of his team. Whether its the media, the League, other coaches or players, Tortorella will say whatever he wants or does not want. He’s just one grumpy ass motherfucker and doesn’t even attempt to hide it. The Rangers are in the middle of what may turn out to be a magical playoff run and you’d think he was working as a prison guard in Rikers.
Makes me wonder if he’s like this 24 hours a day in his personal life. Giving one word answers to his wife and family. Giving yes or no answers to the girl at the McDonald’s drive thru. At the barbershop staring at the barber in the mirror just saying “Next question” every time the guy tries to make small talk with him. I want Bravo to give Torts his own reality show to see all this shit. Like Real Housewives of Tortorella or some shit.
