"If I have a problem with @charlieo_conn
and his backcheck, everyone's going to hear about it," John Tortorella said, describing his coaching style.

The accountability factor, as far as what's expected, as far as play, as far as being a pro, conduct, practice habits, being a teammate, playing on a team concept, we've got some work to do,» Tortorella said.
He clarified he's not talking about everyone. Through an «atrocious» season filled with brutal honesty, he said he learned a lot about certain players by pushing them and «holding them accountable.»
And I have found out about people,» he said with certainty. «As far as people that simply don't know what the word means. And I'm talking about players; some players just don't want to be held accountable, or just can't handle it.»
All of Tortorella's tests start in a group setting, a «classroom setting,» as he called it. When going through film or on-ice drills, if he sees something he doesn't like, he will share that with the player in front of everyone else. He wants the outer pressure to create inner pressure in the locker room until the point where the locker room «takes over itself.»
