Flyers

John Tortorella is probably the most established coach on the market. Hes got a Stanley Cup ring on his resume and is known as a hard ass coach. John Tortorella wins EVERYWHERE he goe, minus that one year in Vancouver. Which is ironic because in Vancouver he was replacing Alain Vigneualt. But if you want to shake things up and hold players accountable, look no further than Torts.

The Flyers have found their new coach.

The team will officially hire John Tortorella to be behind the bench and lead the franchise back to the Stanley Cup. This, according to Kevin Weekes of ESPN. The deal is for 4 years.

Tortorella most recently served as an analyst. This after a 6-year stint in Columbus. Tortorella’s best years were in Tampa where he led the Lightning to the team’s first Stanley Cup. He has a 673-541 record. Tortorella replaces Mike Yeo who was given the interim tag after Alain Vigneault was let go during the season.

Tortorella is a no-nonsense coach who wears his emotions on his sleeve. He will be tasked with a MAJOR rebuild though, something he really hasn’t done since his first season in Columbus.
