Quinn’s Message To Souray

from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun,

Pat Quinn isn’t going to beg Sheldon Souray to stay in Edmonton….

“It’s been no secret here. He’s made it clear for a long time (that he wants a trade),” said Quinn, who spoke with the discontented defenceman on Monday.

“I’m one of those guys that if you don’t want to play here, don’t screw around, get the hell out.”

“We have a hard enough time trying to build team framework. I always believed you should be able to look around that room and look into a teammate’s eyes and say ‘I’m giving it my best and I want you to do the same. That’s how a team builds trust.

“If you have one guy sitting over there who doesn’t bloody well want to be here, how do you build trust, how do you have a team? You don’t.

“Sheldon knows how I feel about that sort of thing.”
