It was one of the most blatant calls outs of a player we've seen all season, one of the most blatant we've seen in years in fact, and now it may lead to the end of a relationship between player and coach.
Late last week Carolina Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters embarrassed veteran goaltender Eddie Lack, effectively implying that he was the worst goaltender in the National Hockey League saying he "knows who's 60" in the top 60 goalies in the NHL. Now despite the fact that the two have reportedly put it past them, there is talk that Lack won't be a Hurricane much longer.
Sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman is reporting that both as a result of the clash of personalities as well as the fact that Lack does not play a style the Hurricanes are comfortable with he "wouldn't be surprised if they try to move him to a better situation"
No word yet on whether or not Lack has asked to be traded after the tirade from Peters, but we do know his agent has spoken to Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis about the incident. With Lack as an eligible candidate for the expansion draft this is a move that could happen sooner than later.
