Canucks Looks To Maintain Image, While New Coach Tortorella Not A Fan Of Twitter
Published September 13, 2013
TORT LAW: In Vancouver, Brad Ziemer noted new head coach John Tortorella "absolutely despises Twitter and would prefer his players not use it." He said, "I think it's the most narcissistic thing I have ever seen." Tortorella added that he "won’t ban Twitter, but has warned his players they had better not be tweeting anything from inside the dressing room." He said, "I am not going to handcuff them and treat them like little kids. There better be no information [coming] out of the locker-room with that damn Twitter. It’s nothing but trouble to me.” Tortorella: “I also respect that social media and all that stuff that we talk about, it’s part of that and I need to respect that and I am going to try and respect that. Our locker-room is our locker-room and I believe our guys understand that" (VANCOUVER SUN, 9/13).
