NY Post
Sean Avery was thrilled to find out that coach John Tortorella had been fired by the New York Rangers.

"Oh, I had a huge smile on my face, no question about it," Avery said. "It's not that I'm happy for myself. I'm happy for the Rangers and Ranger fans. When I was a Ranger, no one was happier to walk into the Garden every day than me. I loved the team. I still do. I want the atmosphere to be the best it can be for the players. I want everyone in New York to be proud of the team. That's why I felt the way I did [on Wednesday] and that's why I sent that tweet." Avery is referring to a tweet he made in which he urged the Rangers to fire "this clown" because "his players hate him and won't play for his BS." Tortorella has a - to put it mildly - strong personality that could clash with others. It will be interesting to see if the Rangers next coach takes a softer tone with his players.
