Tortorella on Jokinen, Prust



Here's some excerpts from the Rangers coach after the morning skate:


On Olli Jokinen:  "I’ve seen play him for a number of years, playing against us in Tampa, with Florida. We’re hoping he can add some goal scoring. He scored a lot of goals against us… I think he brings a little bit of jam to his game also. We’re playing a little different style than Calgary and I hope it will help his game, too.

He’ll play with that top line and where it goes, we’ll see. We want to make him as comfortable as possible. It comes down to getting to know one another, we’ll just help him, it’s been a crazy few days for all involved He also has to understand, we’re doing a lot of concentrating of defense, and he’ll get some power play time, too”


On Brandon Prust:

"I've seen one game. I  watched him play the other night (in Phoenix), we had some great reports on him.

A hard-nosed, honest guy….Both of them will be in the lineup right away."
