03:01 PM ET 06.25 | While the Boston Celtics literally traded their head coach to the other side of the country, the Vancouver Canucks and New York Rangers did the same thing without the aspect of a trade. Former Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault was hired as the next head coach of the New York Rangers last week and now former New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella has been named and introduced as the next head coach of the Vancouver Canucks. He's won a Stanley Cup and been a staple in the postseason in the last decade but his attitude with the media and his blunt way of putting things is what he's known for and is something that doesn't rub everyone the right way. But the Canucks know what they're getting in Tortorella and above all else, that's a head coach with the talent to take them back to the highest level in the NHL.

Should be interesting, sort of like how a train wreck is interesting and impossible to ignore.

Actually caught some of his press conference...warm and fuzzy and very engaging.
My guess is that all ends following game one of the regular season...
