I kind of hope Tortorella does not return to coaching because I love his work at TSN as a hockey analyst. Probably one of the best analyst's on TV right now for any sport.

ummm..didn't he win a Stanley Cup with some young guys named Lecavier,Richards and St. Louis?

There were only 5 guys over 30 on that team....

So I'm assuming you are just regurgitating some stuff you read online and you have no clue what you are talking about.

One Stanley Cup does not make you a good coach.As for the players you named ,they shut down on him.They got to big for him and he did'nt know what to do.

Maybe if the Lighting has steady goaltending, they'd have had more success. Tortz got them to win, and take a look at where Lecaviler was in scoring last year and the previous year.

Then Joe Torre is also a terrible manager.

You may have a point though.... its only been 30 games and I can tell that Gordon is a complete moron.

So I stand corrected.
