John Tortorella's Not a Warm and Fuzzy Guy

Under Tom Renney, the Rangers were criticized for lacking energy and passion on the ice. If this clip of John Tortorella's interviews is any indication, there won't be a shortage of that any longer. They'll also be quite a bit more combative and profane.

Obviously, Tortorella is everything that Renney wasn't in terms of personality. That didn't hurt Renney when he had the horses in the last two seasons, but caught up to him this year. Maybe the Rangers are so soulless that they'll take on whatever persona is handed to them, or it could all meltdown in a blaze of glory. Either way, it should be an interesting final 21 games.
