Sean Avery says he told you so about Tortorella

May 29, 2013, 1:36 PM EDT

You may recall back in March when former Rangers player Sean Avery took to Twitter and called for the firing of New York head coach John Tortorella.

Well, Tortorella was fired today…

Avery, by the way, wasn’t the only player to make his thoughts on Tortorella known via social media. Here’s what injured Bruins forward Marc Savard tweeted after Brad Richards was made a healthy scratch for Game 4 of the New York-Boston series.

    Savard’s brain is jello and Sean Avery knows more about purses than hockey. Who cares what they think?

    Avery acts like he called it. don’t “doubt” him? he didn’t say “i think Torts gets fired end of this season,” he said he would fire him. if he’s saying “doubt” because he thinks that if management made the decision to fire him, it must have been the right decision…. he’s wrong. why wouldn’t he wait til the Rangers play some games with a new coach before opening his floppy head? his 2nd tweet doesn’t make any sense.

    …sorry i’ll find anything to criticize Avery over.

    Sean, you are even less relevant now than when you “played” in the league. Shut your mouth.

    AVERY IS A DOUCHE! About 2 weeks ago he mentioned how he liked Torts.

      I was thinking the same thing… Did Avery not all but retract his initial comments?

    Avery is speaking out of both sides of his mouth.

    http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2013/05/17/avery-playing-for-tortorella-one-of-the-best-things-that-ever-happened-to-me/

    “[Tortorella] actually probably was one of the best things that ever happened to me,” Avery told the New York Daily News. “A month after I was done playing, I made the transition to what is a dream job for most people.”

    “Part of it was the relationship that I had with him as a coach,” he explained. “It definitely helped me make the transition and have a successful career.”

      Well…. hes sorta saying that Torts ran him out of hockey, but it helped him find what he really wants to do. Not sure thats a ringing endorsement in the way you think it is.

      • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 29, 2013 at 9:25 PM

        Yeah! That’s how I read it, but…. Just wanted to point out he didn’t have the balls to stand by what he said.

    He has a lot of nerve. Not the classiest dude to be taking jabs

    Ha Ha. Avery is a hand job, I mean a hand bag. Yeah, I’m really sure its Torts fault that Richards and Nash couldn’t buy themselves a goal with all their millions. The only one that earned his keep was Hank.

      lol calling somebody a hand job is a novel idea. ima try to work that into my regimen of insults.
