07:24 AM ET 06.11 | Recently-dismissed New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella may not have to wait all that long to talk about his next opportunity. [Tortorella] is on the radar as the Dallas Stars conduct their search for a new head coach, a source told ESPNNewYork.com. The Stars have yet to seek permission from the Rangers to speak with Tortorella, however. Tortorella was fired less than two weeks ago after the Rangers' disappointing second-round exit from the playoffs. The polarizing Tortorella, whose brash, aggressive coaching style is believed to have worn thin after four years as coach of the Rangers, is still under contract with New York. ... The Stars have also received permission from Vancouver to speak with Alain Vigneault.

Its been a couple of days without a Torts thread, now everything is back to normal.

Boucher = head coach
Vigneault = offensive coordinator
Tortorella = defensive coordinator

He could be helpful there. He was with the Rangers in the beginning, problem is he never adapted his style to the new team Sather built.

Are they going to play the Cup finals or did they just give it to Boston?

By the wa, I think Vancouver would be a better derstination for Torts. Those guys might need a little tuchas-kicking
