Canucks' Head Coach John Tortorella Suspended for Six Games

New York, N.Y. – Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella has been suspended for 15 days, without pay, for his actions during the first intermission of NHL Game No. 735 in Vancouver on Saturday, Jan. 18, the National Hockey League announced today.

"Mr. Tortorella's actions in attempting to enter the Calgary Flames locker room after the first period were both dangerous and an embarrassment to the League," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell. "Coaches in the NHL bear the responsibility of providing leadership, even when emotions run high, and Mr. Tortorella failed in his responsibility to the game."

Mr. Tortorella's suspension is effective retroactive to January 19 and runs through Sunday, Feb. 2. He will miss six games. He is not permitted to have any interaction with his club prior to, during or after games.

It's fine if it was just for the hallway incident.

Same with Hartley's fine.

The league could've really put the hammer down and suspended players too, but they didn't.

So it could've been worse, and we should all be glad it wasn't.

Totally agree. I'm glad the league didn't mention the starting line-ups. The way things are going, I expected that to be addressed too. For the runway stuff, this seems reasonable.

That's right NHL, police your sport and squeeze every ounce of passion and spirit out of it.

John Tortorella suspended for showing some damn passion, something this league has precious little of. Nice going, NHL.

Give Hartley's fine to Torts and give Hartley nothing, and it would be perfect.

Again, this is for the hallway incident. Torts couldn't even get away with this in the 80s. You just don't do that.

As for the brawl itself, only a small fine for Hartley for putting Westgarth at center for the purpose of starting a fight. That's it.

Generally speaking I'm with you. I just wonder what Torts thought he was going to accomplish in the runway? He made his point on the bench. He should of stopped after that.

Then fine him for the hallway incident, since there were no punches thrown. Suspending him is overkill.
