Morning Line- Elliotte Friedman On Ryan Johansen

“They had the salary dispute last year, and I really thought they worked hard to put it behind them. This is what Tortorella does. He takes his best players and he challenges them. They’ve questioned [Johansen's] will, his determination to put in the work that he needs to do to reach that level of talent. And I think what this has done is shown as an organization they don’t believe he’s anywhere close to being where he needs to be.

“At the end of the day, I don’t think they trust him. And that’s why I think they’re going to trade him."

-Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet on Ryan Johansen.  More from Friedman by Scott Lewis of Sportsnet.
