Torts introduced in Vancouver; Nucks talking to SullyJune 25, 2013, by
In case you missed it, John Tortorella was introduced as the Canucks head coach today, marking the first time in history that teams have swapped head coaches in the same offseason.

Larry Brooks had initially reported that Sully was definitely out as assistant coach, so this shouldn’t be much of a surprise.
