John Tortorellas much-maligned relationship with the media has been a major talking point ever since his hiring in Vancouver. Dustin McGowan Jersey . The new Canucks head coach was on TSN Drive with Dave Naylor on TSN Radio 1050 and his rapport with the media was once again the hot topic. "No matter if its in Vancouver or wherever, and Im very fortunate for another stop here, when youre told youre no longer wanted as a coach, you end up reflecting and assessing," said Tortorella. "Ive done some pretty stupid things along the way... Im going to try and get some of the stupid things out of the way." Tortorella is going from one hotbed media market, where his relationship with reporters was always contentious, to perhaps an even bigger hotbed media market. "I know the scrutiny and the pressure and the media and I think I need to do a much better job at cultivating a relationship. There will be mistakes along the way but I certainly need to straighten a few things out as we begin this." Its easy to say the right thing at introductory press conferences, but Tortorella says he really has learned from the past, and will be better with the Vancouver media. "Its not so much saying it, I believe it. Listen, Im not going to go out to dinner and hang with the media but I need a working relationship." As the 12-year veteran coach says, hell work to be more amicable, but hell never be buddy-buddy with reporters covering the team. "Its not going to be a love-fest here. I still have a job to do." Reports stated Tortorellas relationship with players in New York was at times as difficult as his relationship with the media. Asked if he cared what players think about him, Tortorella had a definitive answer. "No. I dont think you can as a coach. In Vancouver, I think its one of my biggest jobs to try and get guys to another level. Theyre a good team. They havent gotten to a level to win the Stanley Cup. Its my job to try and push them there."  "The way I look at it and the way I introduced myself in the interview was, to get to the next level, I just think there has to be a little bit more stiffness. And the mental part of the game, Im anxious to work on with them." While one of his main tasks may be motivating his players to reach the next level, another big one is dealing with Roberto Luongo and the teams goaltending situation. "I watched it last year from afar and I thought those two players (Luongo and recently-traded Cory Schneider) handled themselves tremendously. It was a really precarious situation." "I have talked to Roberto after the Schneider deal was made and I hope what will help him is that you have new guys coming in as far as a coaching staff." "I think Robertos a hell of a goalie. He isnt a backup... Hes going to be the backbone of our team." According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Tortorella is looking to fill out his coaching staff by adding former Dallas Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan as an assistant. Christian Yelich Marlins Jersey . The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. Giancarlo Stanton Marlins Jersey . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. http://www.officialmarlinsbaseball.com/hoodie/ .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St.So we’re now halfway through our trip and the third leg of the World Rugby HSBC Women’s Sevens Series in Atlanta is over and done with. Atlanta was a good tournament for us, we beat Australia who have been the best team in the world this year, Fiji, Columbia, Russia and Canada, losing only to New Zealand in the semi-finals. Sevens is a funny game, the way it is formatted means you can lose a number of games and ultimately still win the tournament.Like us, Australia only lost one game all tournament and went on to win the competition, whereas America also only lost one game all tournament but finished fifth to win the Plate. Essentially, if you can make it through your group, day two is like a whole other competition. This is why sevens is such an exciting and unpredictable game to watch, which is great for supporters and certainly keeps you on your toes as a player.We drew Russia in our quarter-final, the exact repeat of what happened this time last year in Atlanta. Thankfully the result wasnt the same. Losing in a quarter-final is probably one of the worst feelings playing sevens. You then spend the rest of the day, two more games, fighting for something that you dont really want (fifth place).Additionally, the quality of teams now means that the Plate is often as tough as the cup competition. Luckily that wasnt something we had to contemplate at this tournament. Nothing like playing cards while basking in the sunshine Six games in two days are tough and trying to switch off and relax in between games is essential but tricky. This tournament Bananagrams and card games were leading the charge in the down time.Bananagrams is a quick fire scrabbble type word game which is highly addictive. Christian Yelich Jersey. It is certainly a good time filler. Depending on who you are playing it can be rather amusing as we dont necessarily boast a team full of gifted spellers.I shall leave those players nameless to spare their blushes but safe to say a couple of the girls have realised there is in fact a difference between slang and proper English.Were now in Victoria, Vancouver Island, one of the nicest places we are fortunate enough to visit during the series (IMO). It also plays host to the fattest seals you will ever see. Feeding some of the local residents in Victoria We are staying right near the harbour, so taking a gentle stroll down there in some down time is a nice relaxing way to get out of the hotel and some sea air. The resident seals are always there waiting, floating on the surface due to their slightly larger than normal body mass.Despite this, we bought some fish and fed them and as soon as a certain player (again nameless) had realised that they were seals and not indeed otters, we headed back to the hotel.This weekend will again be a tough test for us, having only a week to recover is challenging for all teams and so it will be a mental battle of will as much as a physical battle. We played some good stuff in Atlanta and have been working hard to rectify some things that werent so great. Langford will be another tough test, and as I said if we can make the second day in a good position its game on.
