Answer > John Tortorella New York Rangers 59%

On the flip side, anyone who watched the HBO series 24/7 this year could see this coach is in control of his team...He demands the best on every shift and calls them out when they don’t deliver ...  Ken Hitchcock and Darryl Sutter came next, each with only 8% of the vote and both were mid-season replacements.
