The Home Grown Talent: Blueshirt Banter Talks To Jim Schoenfeld
The League of Extraordinary Statisticians tackle a key issue: who are some of the most underrated players in hockey history?
John Tortorella is minutes away from meeting with the media but, in a bit of a surprise since Tortorella has mentioned he prefers just having one bench assistant, assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld will remain as an assistant coach, joining Mike Sullivan.
Just had a conversation with Assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld, he said the Rangers did NOT pursue Heatley that heavily, and moving up or down is still a possibility. Jim was very nice, said the Rangers...
And you guys, it's easy to say you've got to be in control, you've got to keep it in check, there are rules, but there's a certain part of your being when you're a coach and it's just like being a parent, there's certain things you'll put up with when people slander your kids. And there's a certain line, and that's what happened to John. You can say anything you want to Torts. I know the man. Call him whatever you want. He'll tell you what to do with your horse. But don't get down on the people he cares about. He will fight for them, and that's what he did.
