Glen Sather was asked, at a golf tournament in Edmonton, about John Tortorella and some of his antics with the media.
Sather said, "Torts is a character, there is no doubt, but he is really a solid guy with a lot of passion and fire for the game. Sometimes he gets a little carried away when a guys cell phone goes off or a guy asks him a dumb question. You just have to ignore those things when you are doing interviews. It gets to be trying after you do 3 or 4 a day and are asked the same question and two minutes later you get asked the same question again. You really need to have a recording."
He added, "I used to say to the players, guys ask me about stress and I said that I don't get stress, I give it. You need to have a sense of humor and can't take everything so seriously, try and answer it in the best way and steer them in another direction. I don't mind what I do, I enjoy it, I enjoy the challenge, the camaraderie of the players and try to keep everything on an even keel. I don't look at it as a job. It is sports by the way, it's fun."
