Anyone who knows New York Rangers coach John Tortorella knows he's actually Arthur Fonzarelli.

Kidding aside, the man his players affectionately refer to as "Torts" is one the most ornery, fiery and intense people you'll come across in the NHL. Those characteristics are driven by his passion for hockey and his will to win.

It's those traits that helped the Tampa Bay Lightning win the 2004 Stanley Cup, and were the driving force behind the Rangers' run to the Eastern Conference finals in 2012.

Tortorella also has an glowing affinity with the media.

In 11 NHL seasons as a bench boss, Tortorella has certainly had some memorable moments in press conferences and confrontations with reporters. 

Leave your comments below if you agree or disagree with the list, or if you think an incident is missing and deserves some attention.

Without further ado, let's take a look at Tortorella's 10 greatest rants.
