Trouble brewing between Roenick and Hitch?

As mentioned in Jim Kelley's column over on ESPN's site:

Keep an eye on what appears to be growing tension between Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock and star forward Jeremy Roenick. There has always been a bit of built-in tension between the button-down coach and the free-spirit player, but Hitchcock's recent remarks about not wanting to have players too comfortable in Philadelphia was interpreted by many to be aimed straight at Roenick. Philadelphia sources maintain Hitchcock was unhappy with Roenick's approach to training camp and wants the talkative player to be more of a leader by example.

This is about a 3 week old story originally published in the Philadelphia papers.

Nothing to the story, media went nuts after Hitch said he thought JR was playing a little inconsistent in the preseason.
