Lots of question about John Tortorella's futur. The suprise will be that the Rangers let him go. — Renaud Lavoie (@RenLavoieRDS) March 31, 2013 ...not sure if this means it'll be a surprise if Torts is let go or that the Rangers will surprisingly let him go. Big difference. ...while I still don't see it happening this season, with the Rangers in full free fall mode I don't think it's out of the question to think that Torts is on the hot seat. It has really gotten out of hand around here. ...and if the Rangers are going to fire Torts, it would actually make more sense to do it now than over the summer as they might get a bounce from it that they could use to make a run to the playoffs and hopefully beyond. ...again, wacky season. Maybe I'm just crazy, but I'd still like to see him get a chance to turn this around under normal circumstances. Meanwhile, Sean Avery, fresh off his Fashion Police appearance, chimed in on Tortorella... ...i am as big an Avery fan and apologist as you'll find, but I don't like this at all. You're the one who decided to retire from the game, so stay out of your former team's business. A tweet like that really puts his ex-teammates in a tough position. ...now having said that, Avery is very close with Richards and Lundqvist, so I don't question that he has access to this information. Because he does. Here's Derek Stepan on Tortorella and Avery's tweet after last night's embarrassing lose (via Daily News)... "Our problem isn't with our coaching staff, and it hasn't been. And I think if you asked everyone on our team, they would say the same thing, that that's not the case here...But I don't agree with (Avery's tweet) at all, no. I think it's safe to say that all 23 guys on our roster would say that's not the case." ...i'm going to take Stepan at his word, but what else was he going to say?
