Torts Voted Worst Coach To Play For

ESPN polled 50 random NHL players.  (Statistically, all you need is 30 for an accurate sample size.)  18% of them voted Tortorella the last coach they’d want to play for.  That was almost double the percentage for second place.  This can’t be good for signing free agents, assuming we had cap space anyway.  And it definitely lends credence to the argument (certainly made by me previously) that his style is not suited for the young psyches on the team currently.  Good move Slats.

(I tried linking to the poll, but you need to be an ESPN Insider to access it.)
