Tortorella: Not a Pistons fan
Today's read o' the day is actually from an interview Lightning coach John Tortorella did yesterday afternoon on The Fan 590 here in Toronto. In it, the surly bench boss basically lost his marbles, ripping into the team's Michigan-based ownership — and especially CEO/governor Tom Wilson for how he ran the team.
That's right: A coach criticizing his boss's boss. Or is that his boss's boss's boss?
We'll see how well this goes over — and especially so given the team hasn't even changed hands yet. It's a good thing Tortorella got the thumbs up guarantee from Doug MacLean and friends.
Not that that's always a joyful experience.
