The Flyers released the first episode of their behind-the-scenes training camp docuseries, titled The Standard. We know the team isn’t gonna be very good this year, but God willing, Torts will have these guys skating hard, blocking shots, and getting pucks in deep.

Watch the first minute of this:

“(it’s the) fucking Philadelphia Flyers… Going over the Walt Whitman and seeing fucking Philly, I got so fucking excited about what we can get to. We gotta get it back on the rails, let’s face it, we’ve got some shit to do.”

Now that’s what I’m talking about! “Be fucking honest with me.” Torts is speaking my language here. Everything he says resonates 100%, and it’s not even very complicated. It’s a two-way street, it’s not gonna be easy, etc. It’s just blunt and honest and he’s not beating around the bush here.

I’d love to play for a guy like Torts. No bullshit, but hard but fair coaching.

(also, the first episode was good)
