Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
In the wake of a playoff series during which John Tortorella discovered he had no go-to guys he believed he could go to, take it to the bank that the coach’s first postseason order of business will be to work with GM Glen Sather to find the way to get Martin St. Louis out of Tampa Bay.
Understand that St. Louis, regarded as the heart and soul of the Lightning’s 2004 Stanley Cup championship team, is one of Tortorella’s favorite players ever. Understand that St. Louis has a no-trade clause that he would all but certainly waive to join the coach, for theirs is a mutual admiration society.
Understand, too, that St. Louis, even at the age of 34 he’ll reach in June, is the big-play difference-maker whose absence was bemoaned by Tortorella following Game 7. Gutsy, too.
