On the way home I could hear Rick Ball and Dave Tomlinson talking about Tortorella's pre-game comments and it sounded like he was basically calling out MG saying he didn't have the players he needed to be successful.

Did anyone hear what he said? If so, please post it as I couldn't find it on here.

thanks.

I think he said that after the game?

He said something about needing to change the look of the team because they suck.

Which is a clear indication we need to try the Booth and a fifth for Crosby proposal again. Maybe it will work this time.

Round about why its equal blame all around. Torts was supposed bring a new identity to the team, the players aren't producing, or playing like their supposed to, and mg hasn't realized he seriously needs to overhaul the team, to a degree, nothing major, just a little bit.

I lashed out earlier this year for AV's comments about his team as he threw Sather under the bus.
I havent heard the Torts interview but if true, he deserves the same backlash.

We are not blind. We see the team needs a shakeup. Torts just needs to do his job and coach the best he can.

I wish we still had Raymond and Ballard because we would have still been able to trade them along with our first for Corey Perry.

Torts just called out Mike Gillis to start making trades because he's tired of coaching this bad team

Post-game talk: Sounds like he's calling out the players just as much as Gillis. There really is something wrong with the team.

Wow, good for him. I like him more for saying what he said. He's judged on wins and losses but if you don't give him the players to win, how the heck can you expect him to.

This just reinforces to me how good a coach AV really is.

It will have to be this, because the Weise and 5th option is no longer available.

Call out Burrows, call out the Sedins, call out Kesler.

These guys are supposed to be the leaders on this team and the ones to lead us out of this funk.

No disrespect to Henrik, but I think there needs to be a captain change next season. Give it to Juice, maybe he can get something out of this group.

i said this in the Boston GDT i will mention it here too

i can see Torts at the end of the season forcing Henrik to give up the captaincy and it's something that needs to be done people can call it just a letter but players are different when they wear that letter and teams play different when certain players are leading their teams

if we lose all of our games till the end of the season (which is possible) - we'll get McDavid :)

wrong year this year is Ekblad and Reinhart but even with the Canucks slump i can't see us getting a top 3 pick those are basically pegged for Florida Edmonton Buffalo and possibly Calgary

Good thing 80% of the team has NTC. Makes that personnel change just a little more difficult.

Pre-game:


We have some thinking to do here as far as where we are as a hockey club here, as far as personnel and as far as what players think and how they have to play.

Do players believe they can win? There’s a lot of questions that need to be asked here.

We are going to push. We’ve tried it another way. We’ve talked about confidence. We need to own where we are as a hockey club. We need to face it.

Judging from what I watched in the past couple of weeks, we’re not even close.



Post-game:


Yes, yes.

We need to change the complexion of our hockey club. Either with our play or with different hockey people.

Because we look like a slow hockey team. We are going to keep on banging away to try to get better.

But I tell you, it’s frustrating to see the same looks. It worries.

Good for Torts. If they won't listen to their fans, then maybe they will listen to their coach. Something has to be done. Either at the deadline, or during the summer by the latest.
