McCarthy and Disgruntled Canuks

Jamie Mirtle (http://mirtle.blogspot.com/2006/03/vancouver-team-divided.html) Suggests the new Thrasher Steve McCarthy may be the source for a Florida reporter who quotes a source as saying that locker room dissention is 10 times worse than what the media has reported.

Tom Benjamin is a bit more skeptical (http://www.canuckscorner.com/weblog/nhllog/) and I would have to place myself in that camp. Mostly because Atlanta hasn't played against Florida since McCarthy was traded here.

It seems unlikely to me that a Florida reporter would call up McCarthy in order to talk to him about the Canucks. Why would a Florida reporter spend that kind of time and energy digging up dirt on Vancouver--a team that Florida will not play again this season? The quote seems more likely to have come up in some casual face-to-face conversation Steve Gorten had with an ex-Canuck.
