Bob McKenzie said on TSN Drive yesterday that the coaches will draw a bunch of attention to a game that not much can be drawn from because many of the players will not end up making the teams.
He added, "in the grand scheme it isn't for real but it will feel that way for Tortorella and Vigneault."
In the Daily News, Pat Leonard writes that some Rangers were frustrated that Tortorella had refused to adjust his coaching style after the team added more offensive firepower last season.
Leonard adds that Tortorella put players on edge so much that they were always looking over their shoulders.
Andrew Gross writes in The Record that this is still an important topic because Tortorella's press conferences may have led to his firing with the Rangers and could be a downfall for him in Vancouver.
While Steve Zipay of Newsday was the only Rangers beat reporter who traveled to the games in Calgary and Edmonton, the NY Daily News, Record and NY Post will all be in Vancouver for tonight's game.
Marc Staal, in the CP, said that things got "stagnant" under Tortorella and had a few unfinished sentences including "It just seemed like we had no...." and "There was a lot of negative...."
The Globe and Mail says that a lot of the focus isn't so much on looking back but on what is next for both teams.
The Rangers and Canucks play in New York on 11/30 and in Vancouver on 4/1
