TORTORELLA VOICES FRUSTRATION ON BLUE JACKETS BEING DISRESPECTED BY OPPOSING TEAMS

APR 21, 2021  (21H50)      COLTON PANKIW
Speaking on Columbus radio station 97.1 The Fan this afternoon, Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella did not hold back on how frustrated he has been seeing opposing teams taking liberties with his young roster.

«It eats at me that we're disrespected that much right now,» Tortorella said. «It's an unbelievable lesson how quickly you can lose respect.»

Tortorella later went on to say that the team is now in position to complain about the liberties teams are taking on them, saying they have to eat it right now. While his comments may have some validity, many are beginning to tune out the two-time Jack Adams winning coach as he seems to have a soundbite every day this season. Whether it is feuds with players, referee complaints, or going at media, Torts has certainly had a lot of spotlight this season. With his contract set to expire at season's end, along with the team's struggles, you have to wonder if this is the last we see of him behind the Blue Jackets bench.
