Tortorella Says Good-Bye To Perrin

from Lightning Strikes,

Coach John Tortorella wished Eric Perrin well but also said not to let the door hit him on the way out.
“He can kiss my (butt),’’ Tortorella said.
Perrin, who in 2004 at age 29 got his first NHL opportunity with the Lightning, which got a recommendation from Perrin’s college buddy Marty St. Louis, signed with the Thrashers as a free agent for two years, $1.5-million. That, apparently, was just $150,000 more than the contract offered by Tampa Bay, which also offered a three-year deal worth $1.575-million.
“This organization spent a lot of time with this guy, a lot of time,’’ Tortorella said. “Eric Perrin did some really good things for us, and the ice time he got, he deserved, but every year it’s nothing but a pain to sign him.’‘
