Grahame ready to meet Lightning

The Globe and Mail's Al Maki picks up on an interesting side story for tonight's Carolina-Tampa Bay game, where Hurricanes' backup netminder John Grahame may have a chance to face his former team — and head coach John Tortorella, who spent more than a few unkind words on the goalie during last year's playoffs.
Asked if he was planning to fling a verbal dart at Tortorella, who by no means thinks anything is his fault, Grahame replied: "Something might come out, you know. It depends on how revved up I get."

Grahame has never been a great goaltender, and probably never will be, but the way Tortorella scapegoated him last year was pretty sad. News flash: He's not Khabibulin.

1) We like Totorella's feistynes, BUT that only goes so far in coaching
2) After a while the players tune you out. With your better coaches( Arbour/Bowman, etc you can't usually tell the score by looking at them
3) Graham is/was not the best goalie, but wasn't the whole reason for TB's decline last season.
