Botchford: Torts’s twisting in the wind his own doing

 

Player dissatisfaction was a big reason behind coach’s departure from New York; but that’s not the case here

 
 
 
 
Unfortunately for John Tortorella, his team is long gone this season, but the scrutiny of his coaching is not. When it comes to Brad Richards, it’s hard to resist. Humiliated last year as a fourth-liner, and infamously a healthy scratch for two critical postseason games, Richards has rebounded rather nicely away from Tortorella and under a new head coach.
