Episode 10: The John Tortorella Experience

As soon as news of John Tortorella’s hiring by the Blue Jackets broke we had Sportsnet’s Dan Murphy join the show to share tales of the last time the coach was seen behind the bench, during his lone and very turbulent season in Vancouver. We also discuss the difficulties of objectively – and therefore sometimes critically – analyzing people you get to know personally off of the ice.

After that, we dive into what’s been a rather interesting start to the season for the Canucks. Will Ryan Miller’s new (but technically old) style continue to translate into a more productive campaign? How long will the team stick with the shaky defense pairing of Hamhuis and Bartkowski? And is there room for both Jake Virtanen and Jared McCann on this roster?
