I think both coaches were fine. Torts has the right to be mad(over did it but still had the right) and the other guy has every bright to send out his goons. In the video clip it clearly stated away teams enter their lineup in first then the hometeam can counter. So if EVERYONE knew what was coming torts coukdve countered with anyone he wanted.

To me it would only be a problem of Calgary was the home team and they gooned up against stars players...but they didn't.

Torts was right in his post game interview. He could not put the sisters on the ice because they might have broken a nail. 

 

But for real though, I wouldn't put my stars out there either. Someone on the TSN comments mentioned the guy who took the Flames opening face-off only took 2 others before this game. They weren't out there because "they scored a goal last game", they were out there to start something.

NHL needs to fine the Flames coach. That was bush league move to start the game. He might have had his reasons, but this makes the game look bad,

I disagree, this is rivalry. What will make the NHL look bad is the goal scored by Kronwall which clearly wasn't a goal.

Agreed Torts can b e as mad as he wants, but going over to the other dress room and starting to throw punches crossed the line. Hartley can send everyone outthere, Torts has the last change.  It's a rivalry and sadly we aren't seeing things like this oftten enough, emotions are running high.

Note to Tortorella; don't be mad, you need more toughness.

If Detroit started their fourth line, I don't think anyone would notice.

It clearly WAS a goal.  It did clearly hit the net, which the officials didn't see, so according to the rules, play continues on, so the goal counts.

Scientists give asteroids names.

Calgary fans should name their hemorrhoids "Bob Hartley".

He has a storied history at being one.

Great stuff. Don't think it makes the NHL look bad, this is what rivalries are about and don't anyone tell me they don't wish we didn't have this type of rivalry with the Avs and Blues again.

 

Fantastic entertainment, which is why we all watch hockey in the first place.

Hartley absolutely did. He put out that starting lineup and had Westgarth, a winger, take the opening faceoff. Everyone in the hockey world knew exactly what was going on. When you put those players out and an all out brawl ensues, the coach is responsible.

If the league is fine with the outcome, so be it. But if they don't like how that game and want to be seen as a legitimate sport then they absolutely need to punish Hartley for his actions. Everyone knew what was going to happen. This wasn't simply a coach starting his 4th line.

It's fitting that it happens the same night as the Wings goal off the netting. If the NHL wants to be taken seriously they need to address what is actually happening. Everyone knew the Wings goal shouldn't have counted, yet it did because of four incompetent officials and a bad review policy. Everyone knows what was going to happen when Hartley put out that lineup.

The league has all the legitimacy of professional wrestling tonight.

 

IMO nothing would make hockey less legitimate than not allowing certain players to start a game, or play against other players.

 

If Torts wanted to defuse the situation, he could have played the Sedins with Sestito. None of the Canucks were jumped in the line brawl, despite Westgarth having the chance to force Bieksa to fight. The refs also went overboard in giving four players from each team misconducts for secondary altercations, when two of the fights were simultaneous.

Good old time hockey! Yes!! Torts was fired up and so was his team. It's a great thing to see all this passion. Not all the time, of course, but games like this shouldn't happen once every ten years in this league.

no.
I've been a  Penguins fan for over 25 years. 

But in all seriousness, this game was actually pretty intense. 
PJ Stock went balistic during the first intermission.
I would be suprised if CBC keeps him. 
 

 

edit: i have video here.
not sure if it will be viewable for people outside Canada.
oh well might as well try.

I agree with Torts, I would've matched 4th lines too.  Hartley is a ******, always has been.

I don't like either coach. Hartley's an ******* and Tortorella absolutely craves attention.

Tortorella is such a retard.  Did he really think he was going to get past McGrattan and the entire Flames team to get at Hartley?

 

This guy throws a big scene for every team he coaches for.  He's always acting bigger than the team.  Whether it's his antics on the bench, press conferences or interviews, Tortorella is a guy no team should hire.  He's a distraction to all his teams.
