Video: Rangers Fire John Tortorella, So Enjoy His Best Media Meltdowns

May 29, 2013, 4:35 PM EDT

Sad to see John Tortorella was fired from his post as head coach of the New York Rangers on Wednesday? No? You should be. He was an easy figure to dislike in the Flyers-Rags rivalry over these past five seasons.

He’s gone now though, and all we have left are the memories of his dickishness. Oh, and this video of his top-10 media meltdowns as compiled by SportsCentre Canada, brought to us by CBS Eye on Hockey, which includes the time Torts suggested former Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock shut his yap during the ’04 playoffs. Enjoy.

    Tortorella was good enough to beat the Flyers at our only (so far) home Winter Classic game. I still remember he & his team playing harder than the Flyers that day….really pissed me off. Maybe he should come to Philly, might up the Flyers game….and his attitude sure would fit in Philly!

      Have you ever experience Peter Laviolette saying words?

    Brooksie must be so happy right now.

    Please, God, don’t let him get some national broadcast/analyst job.
