According to Arthur Staple at Newsday, Zach Parise’s father was asked about Zach’s feelings on John Tortorella. His response:
“Zach likes Torts a lot. Zach knows how to work, he doesn’t shy away from the discipline part of it. He’d fit right in there.”
Obviously his father was baited a bit there, but...
