Having now recovered enough from his broken ribs to resume coaching the Blue Jackets, John Tortorella has joined the team for a game in Vancouver on Thursday.
Tortorella coached the Vancouver Canucks, but that didn't go well and he was fired after just one season on the job. "It takes more time than (one year) for you to get your team concept to your team, for your team to understand you and for you to understand your team. I wanted to see it through," Tortorella said. Smiling, he added, "You guys (in the media) were crawling up my (back) and all over me, but I still think we would have seen it through and we would have understood each other better if we would have stayed together. But we didn’t. And for me, I’m very fortunate to get another opportunity." Thus far, Tortorella's tenure with Columbus seems to have gone better than his time in Vancouver, though the real test will come next season as this campaign is largely lost for the Blue Jackets.
