Found October 25, 2011 on NY Daily News:
John Tortorella refuses to "dissect" the issues plaguing his club, but after Monday's 2-1 win in Winnipeg, the Rangers coach provided an accurate summary of his team's 3-2-2 start on the road. "We score a couple, we're ugly as hell, and our goaltending has certainly given us an opportunity right on through here," Tortorella said. "So we're looking forward to going home."

Is John Tortorella The Right Man For The Rangers Job?

I like Rangers head coach John Tortorella, I admit it. It’s probably one of the least “cool” things that a Rangers fan can admit to right now, but I like him. However, when I see a post game press conference that last only 16 seconds, like what occurred after last Saturday’s abysmal 2-0 loss in [...]

John Tortorella Holds Outstanding Press Conference: We Sucked from Head to Toe

Rangers coach John Tortorella conducted one of the best press conferences we’ve seen recently. And by press conference, we mean brief monologue. Tortorella was upset with his team’s 2-0 loss to the Oilers Saturday night, a game where they gave up a goal and assist to top overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. He was also frustrated [...]

Questions for Rangers’ Fans About the Homestand

Every once in awhile, I like to get readers directly involved in my blogs and today happens to be one of those times. Feel free to leave a comment for the following questions: 1) What would you like to see the New York Rangers accomplish during this 6-game homestand? 2) What forward lines would you like to see head coach John Tortorella utilize? Why do your proposed lines make...

The Reasons For Line Tinkering

The line combos, the line combos…it’s always the same complaint isn’t it? Since the advent of the internet I feel like I read the same complaints about the Rangers year in and year out. There’s always a stretch of games at some point during the season where either the fans, the bloggers, or the beat writers don’t like what they are seeing and the result is people crying...

It Is Called Accountability

The other night after the New York Rangers lost to the Edmonton Oilers 2-0; John Tortorella took the easy way out rather than answer questions from the media. "We Stunk and I am not going to answer any questions" he said and walked away before anyone could ask him a single question. Those who defended Tortorella's behavior did not understand that part of being...

Live at the Garden for opening night

Unfortunately, no John Tortorella press conference tonight … he did his talking … or not-talking … at the morning skate, as is his option. Hopefully that won’t become a habit, because I’m not getting my aasen down here for morning skates very often, if ever. Will have a Go Time later. The Rangers are going to do this Blue Carpet thing for MSG Network. Not sure what...

To Contend Rangers Must Make MSG Home Sweet Home Again

The New York Rangers finally get to hit home ice tonight after playing their first seven games on the road.  The team battled through both poor play and injuries on defense to come home with a successful 3-2-2 record.  Much of the discussion this week is about how nice it is for the Rangers to be with the opportunity to play in a partially renovated Madison Square Garden...

Postgame: Same Old Rangers Disappoint in New Home Opener

The Blueshirt faithful entered the newly transformed Madison Square Garden with heads held high this evening, proud of the  beautiful facility they were walking into for their beloved team's home opener. Three hours later, though, they left with their heads hung low realizing their club just dropped their fifth of eight games this season. The hope was that coming home after...

Rangers Must Regain Identity

The list can go on and on when talking about what's went wrong with the New York Rangers so far this season, but when you look at everything as a collective whole, there's one aspect of their game that is missing that has stood out to me the most; their identity. This year's Rangers have been far from the Black and Blueshirts squad we saw exceed expectations in 2010-11...

Rangers' Hank skates past injury concern

Both Henrik Lundqvist and John Tortorella said there were no concerns about the goaltender's health. But as for the rest of the team, the Rangers need to work on their "overall game, top to bottom" after they "sucked from head to toe" in Saturday night's 2-0 loss to the Oilers. That's what Tortorella said after the Blueshirts practiced at the scene...

Pregame: Rangers Conclude Road Trip in Winnipeg

The New York Rangers want nothing more than to be home right now since they've been on the road since game one of the regular season, but there is one last game to play before they do so and that will come tonight against the Winnipeg Jets. This will be the Rangers' first return to Winnipeg since 1995, so there's a lot of history that goes along with tonight's match...
