Jokinen Rips Martin On Way Out Of Miami

If there was any doubt about the rocky relationship between Olli Jokinen and Jacques Martin, there isn't now.

"Every player has a down year, but I don't think I had the support of management. At the end of the year, I don't think they respected what I do. That makes it kind of hard to respect them. I took most of the blame for last year, and looking back, that was a mistake. It wasn't the best thing to do. The message from the staff was that [missing the playoffs] was my fault. How much can you blame one guy? Maybe they didn't do such a good job either."
