New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella was not happy with recent comments made by San Jose Sharks captain Joe Thornton, who called the Rangers "probably the softest team we played against."
"Yeah it caught me off-guard when it was brought up after the game," Tortorella said, according to the Daily News. "It surprised me, and I've never heard a player say that. Joe's a heck of a player, but here's a player popping off about our team, and Joe hasn't won a G------ thing in this league."
"He could go down as a player, being one of the better players in our league never to win anything. So what he should do is just shut up. It was uncalled for, it was classless, and I've never had it happen like that before."
