NHL fines Tortorella $20,000

This, to me, is a complete joke. The NHL allows players to maim one another, allows teams to purposely start brawls, allows a player last night to effect a race for a division title by stopping a puck with his stick from the bench, but a coach can’t speak his mind?

IMO, Tortorella should sue the NHL for trampling his right to free speech. Asinine.

Also, IMO, what he said was absolutely true, every word of it, and has been true since Mario Lemieux came into the league.
