Martin and Quinn: Feud for thought

 Jacques Martin and Pat Quinn are continuing their own little battle off the ice.

 While the coaches will work together at the World Cup, that hasn't stopped the verbal jousting that's going on.

 Martin scoffed at remarks by Quinn, who said the Senators try to sell themselves as "goody-two-shoes" team.

 "How long have you guys known Pat Quinn? You should know better than that," said the Senators coach. "He always says these sorts of things. He's been doing it for years. It's the old ploy. He's just saying those things to try and protect his players.

 "If you look at the record of this team, it speaks for itself. We've got a skilled team and we've been one of the least-penalized teams in the league for a number of years."

 Quinn refrained from firing back.

 "I'm sure when (Martin) deflects these things back to us, you have to take it for what it's worth and as far as I'm concerned it's worth nothing," said the Leafs coach. "He does a very good job deflecting this stuff and trying to shield his team from the way they play. I've said my piece before. I'm not going to get into it any further."
