Lightning have egos?
This may be news to every single Lightning fan.
If all you're getting is the blown out of proportion Lecavalier talk, you're missing out on what's really going on. Even if it were true, that's 1 of 23. Maybe a little Khabibulin.
Tortorella deserves a lot of credit. He's not nearly the animal he's protrayed to be by the media - specifically the Canadian media.
EXAMPLE: This past weekend, on Scoreboard Saturday during the VAN-ANA game, they show Torts and Lecavalier talking to each other on the bench and MacLean says "Tortorella and Lecavalier are at it again. Will they ever learn?" Then the show the goal Lecavalier scores and he says "he must of said something that works."
In actuality, the goal came before the conversation, and the aired conversation was nothing more than BOTH discussing some kind of strategy. No yelling, nothing. It was RIGHT AFTER Lecavalier scored the goal, not before like CBC implied.
Totally blown out of proportion.
