And if they did, they could just turtle and enjoy their 5 on 3, 7 minute PP while the Flames get game misconducts and possibly suspensions.

    While I personally still want to see a line brawl in person, I think this was avoidable.

    Gillis, Torts, and that entire team are ****ed. No goals, and just unabashed, forced goonery that's masked as an attempt to stand up to teams. Good luck with that team identity.

    Both Torts & Hartley are tools. They deserve each other.

    Especially if the NHL suspends him 10 Games, which puts him out until after the Olympics.

    I poked at some friends on Facebook when I said they wouldn't make the Playoffs, and I just don't see them doing it if he's out that far. I get he's trying to get that locker room "Tighter" but if he's playing golf while they are losing games, it could be the end for Gillis.

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Good article with some of the coaching history, this isn't the first time this has happened

    Tortorella-Hartley feud goes way back to the 1995 Amerks

    Torts gets 15 Days (6 Games), Hartley gets a $25K fine.

    Tortorella suspended 15 days for actions against Flames

    The Canucks have a less than stellar schedule over that time frame:

    I'm reading some comments from fans saying they hope Torts circumvents the suspension and there is no way the NHL could prove it. Apparently things like phone/computer records don't exist in Canada.

    I can only imagine what the penalty would be for trying to circumvent a no-contact suspension. It wouldn't be pretty.
