Kukla's Korner Hockey

This time of year tends to lend itself to all sorts of "reports" regarding fired and soon-to-be-fired coaches, and, as Sportsnet's Jeff Lowe noted, the Globe and Mail's Gary Mason leveled some pretty stiff assertions (via Twitter) regarding John Tortorella's misspent tenure with the Vancouver Canucks:
Some fascinating tidbits coming out about the brief Tortorella era in Vanc; including fact he wanted team to buy out Alex Burrows' contract.
Also hearing Torts didn't have a single convo with farm team head coach Travis Green all season; hard to imagine. #canucks
That would be Travis Green of the AHL's Utica Comets.
Also hearing players didn't feel Torts liked practicing enuf; he also accused David Booth of being late for team meeting he was early for
No coach perfect. And any time one departs under circumstances like Tort's then natural to expect some complaints/stories to later surface
