Don’t Call The Sedins “Soft”

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,

The Canucks have signed the Sedins to matching four-year, $28 million extensions. After the deals were announced, head coach John Tortorella did not disappoint.

He went to town on those who ascribe to the theory the twins are soft players.

“I’m not sure who started it but I’m sure there are a couple of know-it-alls out there who always talk about it,” Tortorella began. “But they don’t have a clue what these guys are about.

“I think, in our league, we act like idiots sometimes when that (stuff) sticks with them.

“I’ve been dying to talk about this. These aren’t soft people. These aren’t soft players.

“It pisses me off, the reputation that’s still out there. It’s so undeserving and so disrespectful.”

Asked to expand, Tortorella was more than willing.
