John Tortorella’s greatest media rants as NY Rangers coach (Video) | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- Remember teh asshattery that was John Tortorella v. The Media.
Mark Messier, New York Rangers head coach? | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- What kind of joke of an organization installs a franchise legend as their coach(/eventual GM) seemingly merely because he's a franchise legend?
