Benching Booth shouldn’t be a surprise with Torts at the helm.
Yes, the team has adopted a new system under Tortorella, but Booth said himself he believed it suited his style of game and has had a month — including three weeks of regular season games — to get comfortable with it.

Our team is not going to dive … And I hope we get some gawd damn calls along the way.
Up this morning on the Hat Trick:
1. How angry is John Tortorella at David Booth?
2. Another D called up from Utica.
3. Chris Higgins sees a spike in his playing time.

Our Canucks reporter, Jason Botchford, learned more about Joe Thornton than we wished to know:

Hearing a question to Marleau about Hertl and whether he was showboating, Thornton said:

“Shut up, have you ever played the game?”


When the press turned his way, he then added:

“I’d have my cock out if I scored four goals. I’d have my cock out, stroking it.”

OK, then.

TMI, Thornton, TMI.

For all his faults, AV did have a sense of humour.
We’re feeling awfully nostalgic ahead of tonight’s return of AV. Here’s 3 things we’ll miss about him and three things we, well, won’t.

“I don’t play the I’m-the-boss card. The guys know all the work I do to get us ready and because they’re smart, they know I’ve earned the respect here. I’m doing the job so they can be successful. Players seek that. If I see they’re putting in an honest effort, I’ll be in their corner.”
We’ll get to see those polar opposite coaching styles tonight when AV returns to Vancouver.
