Graeme had a note on this earlier today, but we have begun to enter the fun stage of this genre where the translation makes its way back to those who were slagged. For the unawares, yesterday in a Globe & Mail story, Turris went all Andre Petersson on SM-Liga transportation, Finnish truck-stop dining, and that country's pitiful lack of sunlight. I'm also pretty sure there was something in there insulting Finnish women, not to mention his severe disdain for saunas, reportedly calling them "********", and that he's really "more of a hot-tub kind of a guy". In short bridges were burned. So first we go to Karpat's head coach: Kärpät coach to STT on Turri' comments: "They were like a slap in the face. The fact here is that we don't have private planes to fly with." — Matias Strozyk (@MaStrozyk) December 18, 2012 Coach Hannu Aravirta: "Maybe he doesn't understand our reality. We don't have any five-star restaurants en route to Pori." — Matias Strozyk (@MaStrozyk) December 18, 2012 Oh this is getting good. Now onto Turris's agent who had this to say (via Puck Daddy): "The Globe & Mail article completely misrepresented Kyle's experience in Finland," said his agent, Kurt Overhardt, who called the article "erroneous" in a phone interview on Tuesday. He has nothing but positive things to say about the team, and the way they treated him" The interesting thing about all this is, for much of the afternoon the Globe story was taken offline, leading to speculation the reporting may be suspect. But it has since been re-posted, with this one small correction: Turris is slated to have an official denial statement via the team's website Wednesday morning. I'm not sure Kyle was planning to head back to Finland anyway, he just might not have the option now. Oh...and of course there's a parody account: On Sunday, I actually had to carry my own equipment bag to the bus. The bag didn't even have wheels! — Free Kyle Turris (@FreeKyleTurris) December 18, 2012
