That DJ is terrible. Letang whines all the time, Neal is soft, because he fought Ference instead if Lucic... I love hockey, but it's frustrating sometimes that most of the talk about it consists of petty and juvenile "my team is tougher than yours, which is dirty and soft" garbage. And as long as cement heads like Don Cherry dictate the discourse, it is not going to change.

My favorite part of Tortorella's quite embarrassing rant is his statement that there "no respect among players... sickening". That's quite a riot coming from that ****head. As I said, no idea how he managed to keep a straight face.

I do have to admit Letang's embelishment the other night was pretty embarassing.

I'll agree with the general sentiments here.

Tortarella is a Grade A Hypocrite.

how many non-penguin or for that matter, non hockey fans have asked any of you about this torts rant? i have had to answer to about 6-7 people. they take it all as gospel, which in all of this, is what infuriates me. (same thing happened last weekend with lavatory).

I'm, quite frankly, ok if the Pens are the big bad bullies that no one can stop. If Sid and Malkin are dirty whiners in everyone else's eyes, all the better when the continue to light other teams up. When the series are over, doesn't matter what anyone's character is (correctly viewed or not), it's the numbers on the scoreboard that determine who wins or loses.

At this point, other teams are viewing the Pens as an unstoppable freight train doing what they please, when they please. The moaning by Torts and Laviolette are mere pennies on the tracks.

While trying to find this answer, I stumbled upon the US mens national ice hockey team's wikipedia page and in 1948 they beat Italy 31-1 :shock:

I couldn't find the answer, but one article I found said Wilson beat out Tortorella and Laviolette for the HC position so it is definitely a possibility. Also pretty ironic to see those 2 being the runners up since they are both gonna be beat out by Bylsma in 2014 for the spot ;)
