It's no mystery that numerous players have had a difficult time playing under John Tortorella. The former head coach of the New York Rangers can be a difficult man to speak with, a lesson the media has learned several times over. His aggressive style might have led to his demise as fans and analysts speculate that Henrik Lundqvist's future with the Rangers might have been linked to Tortorella's future with the club.
Shortly after the news about Tortorella's dismissal from the Rangers surfaced, former Ranger Marian Gaborik sent out a Tweet giving his thoughts on the situation.
