"The thing I like about Nash -- and I haven't even met him face to face -- in one conversation with him, he's all business," Tortorella told the website Blueshirts United on Thursday. "Everyone I have talked to about him says he's not a real high-maintenance guy -- [he] wants to play hard, wants to play every day and practice every day. I think we have him at a really good time in his career, and I think he's going to fit in with us tremendously."
Tortorella, known for his no-nonsense approach and the competitive nature of his teams, is confident Nash will fit in despite never winning a Stanley Cup Playoff game -- the Blue Jackets made the postseason just once in his nine seasons with Columbus.
