John Tortorella, a seasoned coach in the National Hockey League spanning over three decades, has made a lasting impact, eliciting strong reactions from players and fans alike. Whether you love or hate Tortorella, few remain indifferent to the veteran coach.

While Tortorella's well-publicized issues with former Flyers forward Kevin Hayes may have shaped perceptions of his coaching style in Philadelphia, a different narrative emerges within the Flyers' locker room.
Over the weekend, Flyers defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen, often under scrutiny, praised his head coach, expressing a wish to have crossed paths with Tortorella earlier in his NHL career.
"I wish I had him when I was 18 coming into the league," admitted Ristolainen. "I feel like I've taken big steps under him."

Selected 8th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres, Ristolainen had faced criticisms relative to his draft status. However, since joining the Flyers, it's evident that Tortorella has played a role in unlocking potential within the Finnish forward. While Ristolainen may not fulfill the initial expectations set by the Sabres, Tortorella's impact on his game is undeniable.
