Iím sure there was 10 minutes of dual laughter about Edmonton picking Pizzaparty.

Brisson isnít happy about blow hardy Torts.

Quote:
"From Day 1 of camp, John Tortorella wanted to expose Pierre-Luc Dubois," Brisson said, according to TSN's Darren Dreger on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading." "This included going on (the) radio the second week, which made it more difficult for (general manager Jarmo Kekalainen) to do his job. Now, he continues to use different media platforms trying to justify his position."

Tortorella has repeatedly spoken about Dubois' trade request in late December. In early January, prior to Dubois' trade to the Winnipeg Jets, the Columbus Blue Jackets head coach said on the radio that Dubois "hasn't given a reason why he wants to leave." In an interview that aired Wednesday, Tortorella acknowledged that he and the 22-year-old had conflict while calling today's athletes "softer."

After being dealt to Winnipeg last week, Dubois said he didn't demand a trade due to his relationship with Tortorella.

Additionally, Brisson pointed to Jets head coach Paul Maurice as an example of how he would've liked Tortorella to handle the situation.

"I have not heard Paul Maurice once say anything about a trade request from both (Patrik) Laine and (Jack) Roslovic," Brisson said. "This could've been Operation Submarine, but ah well, Torts wasn't able to help himself."

This whole situation is so weird.

If Dubois had no problem with the coach, his teammates, the city, or the fans why did he want out so bad?

Just because he has more class than two grown men, and doesnít blab it all to the media, doesnít mean he didnít have an issue.

Torts has no issue telling the media he won't talk to them after a bad game. But he loved talking to the media about PLD. Brisson took it easy on Torts.

Has it been covered that possibly Laine wanted out cause Wheeler and Schieffle are dicks to him? I could see it. Schieffle especially. Ever since I heard he tried to screw over his personal chef. Never got a good vibe from that dude.

Yup, sounds like Scheifele is a dick who took advantage of someone in a vulnerable position after making him quit his other job, then firing him for not taking on another teammate as a client at a reduced pay.

It's not about being cheap. The whole thing for people like that is a power play. They could all easily pay but a lowly peasant dared to stand against them. It's a powere thing nothing more.
