PHT on TV: John Tortorella’s brisk press conferences

May 17, 2012, 9:30 PM EDT

New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella has been described as “fiery,” but his press conferences would best be characterized as “frosty” lately. They’ve also been sometimes ludicrously short, so NBC Sports Talk tabbed Jason Brough and Mike Halford for a quick take on what – if anything – the NHL should do about it.

    Why should the league do anything about it? All of the questions Torts refused to answer were related to the teams strategy, or directly concerned specific players… things no coach should be forced to talk about publicly. The media is just butt hurt because Torts won’t give them the juicy, dirt filled responses they want.

    I felt I gave a lot to that segment.

    Wow, there’s 20 seconds of my life that I’ll never get back.
    What was that?

    As if Torts owes the media anything.
