Torts responded, "Are you being a wise ass? I am not going to give you that much information. Some of you guys sit there and tell me that I am curt or whatever and I am not going to have a staring contest. If you don't ask me questions I will just leave. That is the way it is. I am sorry that I am not a guy who wants to converse about everything during the playoffs."
During his press conference today, John Tortorella was asked why he was the way he was with the media and if it was just because he didn't like dealing with them.
