Tortorella Gets 15 Day Suspension

Vancouver Canucks Coach John Tortorella

John Tortorella loses it on Calgary

Well it seems after John Tortorella met with Colin Campbell, it’s been decided that Tortorella would be suspended for 15 days after trying to confront Calgary coach Bob Hartley following the antics of their Saturday night game.

I understand the NHL wanting to crack down on this kind of behavior, but it seems silly that Bob Hartley gets off free, even though he instigated the whole mess to begin with.

But I guess that’s hockey.  Usually the aggressor walks away while whoever retaliates to a situation gets a penalty or suspension.

You never want to get a suspension in the NHL, but I think Tortorella did it for all the right reasons and by the end of it, hopefully the Vancouver Canucks are going to become even more of a “Team” knowing that their coach is %110 behind them.
