    It's the punches to the nuts, kicks to the face, public hangings, castrations and belittlements that is too much.

    I expect a good 40 - 45 games. then the trade deadline, people will ask out (or he'll demand certain guys who won't block shots go) and by this time next year it will be a bigger dumpster fire than it is right now.

    Just with less good guys in the room.

    Given that CBus has to give up the 2nd rounder in one of the next three years,
    I wonder whether Torts will still be there by the time the pick is moved.

    Who are you praying to?

    If you're praying to God for someone's demise for your own selfish reasons, chances are good God's gonna roll his eyes and hang up the phone on you. If you're praying to someone like Satan or Muhammad or Emperor Palpatine or Donald Trump or Roger Goodell, then things might happen for you.

    So, one thing I keep hearing is that he's a winner, a "proven" winner. I looked up his career record and as a coach overall his win pct is .483 (playoffs) and .538 (regular season).

    A few coaches with a better record in the playoffs:
    Mike Milbury
    Ron Wilson
    Paul Holmgren
    Rick Bowness
    Barry Melrose
    Terry Crisp
    Randy Carlyle
    Don Cherry
    Craig MacTavish


    Bolded are better regular season too. Torts has two years to win 200 and equal Jacques Martin.

    Sortable list:

    I have to share this here because I am growing tired of being told to "learn about hockey" in other sites. The feebs over there might literally shit themselves if I posted this.

    Ha! That's a trick. They are all the same person!

    But, as I always do, I am praying to The Ryan. A-Miller.

    With a 3 year contract we can expect a bump in this thread probably around this time next year.

    Twatwaffle at his best, from the BlueJackets chat today;

    I would put Johansen on the 'ones to watch" list with Tortorello behind the bench. The body language hasn't been good for a while now with Johansen. The line changes have been slow, and that's an indicator of so many things. Johansen is not a bad kid, but one symptom of his frustration is to sulk and get dejected. Let's be honest: players who are All-Stars or first-round draft picks do get special treatment. It's REALLY easy to scratch Cam Atkinson or Rene Bourque or other guys. It takes you-know-whats to scratch the most talented player on the team, but Tortorella has a history of making such bold moves. Players will be benched. It shouldn't be seen as picking on the kid, but an attempt to motivate and make him better. But when you're young and so damn talented, it can be hard to differentiate.

    Latest Chat Transcript

    He's starting up the pretty hate machine on Johansen early so when Ryan says "Fuck this shot blocking shit" and asks for a trade, the fans can turn on him as fast as they did Nash.

    Johansen put this team on his back last year, and this year has been one of the few consistent bright spots. He is not only chasing pucks harder than anyone else, but he is actually hitting this year more than I've ever seen.

    2-1 at the break with Dubinsky cashing in on the PP. One period down, no players crying yet.

    Ice level mics are picking up some of Torts on the bench on the Jackets broadcast.

    Not sure if he's behaving because he knows that or if he's still just stunned someone hired him, but it's all been positive. When he sees something good like a forward covering pinching D or a good battle for the puck he's yelling out "That's it, that's what we want to see" for the bench.

    Line combos are interesting:
    Saad - Johansen - Foligno
    Calvert - Dubinsky - Jenner
    Hartnell - Wennberg - Atkinson
    Campbell - Karlsson - Clarkson

    Other than Calvert not being ready for the ice time he's getting, that's pretty good.
