I love John Tortorella. I love his no holds barred attitude at press conferences and interviews. He’s honest, he’s brash, he’s got an opinion and he’s not afraid to say it.
This is “Torts” response after the Orpik knee-to-knee hit on Stepan after the April 5th game against the Pens.
Tortorella’s opinion of the Penguins:
“I wonder what would happen if we did it to their two whining stars? Wonder what would happen?” Tortorella said, referring to Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. “So I’m anxious to see what happens with the League. There’s no respect amongst players. None.”
“That’s one of the most arrogant organizations in the League,” Tortorella said of the Penguins. “They whine about this stuff all the time. It’s ridiculous. But they’ll whine about something else over there, won’t they? Starting with their two (bleeping) stars.”
