Brandon Dubinsky Took Swipes at Jody Shelley and Zac Rinaldo Today

That sound you hear is an HBO producer masturbating feverishly in a darkened editing room somewhere (at what you are about to read, not the above picture. we think).

Earlier today, when it was announced that Chris Pronger will undergo knee surgery, there was no doubt that the folks over at HBO made a sad, since said (triple-letter score on those Ss) announcement will mean much less Pronger during 24/7 taping, which begins in full on December 4.

Well, cheer up, you hipster Hollywood types, you– Brandon Dubinsky just landed jabs to the misshapen jaws of Jody Shelley and Zac Rinaldo.

In response to Shelley calling him a “weasel” on HBO’s 24/7 preview, Dubinsky responded thusly: [NY Daily News via SNY Rangers Blog]

“First of all, if I was him, I’d keep my mouth shut if I don’t play, especially since I never see him on the ice… He’s usually just yapping from the bench, and I guess now he’s yapping from behind the video camera. So that’s about all I have to say.

Jody Shelley — it won’t be long before he’s out of the league, because he’s a terrible hockey player.”


And on Rinaldo, who took a run at Sean Avery on Saturday…

“I think he’s an idiot… And I think that, I mean, he’s not really a good hockey player. So if that’s what he tries to do to get under our skin, I don’t think it works very well. He’s not very effective at it. I think they should just keep putting him on the ice, because he’s a liability against us.” 


Gulp. Daddy just hit mommy, and it’s about to get real ugly in here.

To be fair, Brandon (btw– you look a lot like Pete Campbell from Mad Men), we must point out that Shelley is currently enrolled at the Jagr Hockey School, so he is trying. And while he may not be very good at the sport, both he and Rinaldo can fight like motherfuckers, so… 

… yeah, you get it.

Now, we’ll let that HBO producer get back to his business.

Fap… Fap… Fap

  1. Players like Jody Shelley are not long for this world in the NHL, and I certainly don’t see the need for him on the Flyers.
    That being said, Brandon Dubinsky has yet to make it out of the first round of the playoffs in his career, so maybe he should shut the fuck up for a while.

  2. All he could come up with was “They’re bad hockey players?” Shelley wins (for once) with at least a little creativity.

  3. wonder who will step up to put dubinsky in his place since richie’s off in hollywoodland going to twilight movie premieres and tweeting the bieb…

  4. Haha, obviously Rinaldo does a pretty good job of getting under their skin if Dubinsky is going out there complaining about him.
    Unfortunately I have to agree with him on Shelley though.

  5. Brandon Dubinsky would never drop them with anyone thats why Shelley called him a weasel. That was the censored, made for prime time TV version. I cant wait till Shelley calls him a fucking bitch like he is.
    He starts so much shit but gives hummers to Avery before the game to protect him.

  6. At least the Rangers “tough guys” like Avery and Prust and Rupp can actually play the game. It may not be at the NHL level without their other skills like fighting and instigating, but having the puck on their stick doesn’t make them fall down ala Shelley and Rinaldo.

    Ummm, Bradnon Dubinsky has had a ton of fights in his career, including against traditional tough guys. He is not somebody who backs down from fights. I remember specifically a huge fight between OV and Brandon last year, but there have been many.

  8. @Bogans
    It was great seeing Dubinsky get KO’d by old timer Luke Richardson a few years back, wasn’t it?

  9. Since when is OV a “tough guy”? Come on man!! I am a pens fan and the three fights sid has had does not mean he’s a tough guy!! he gets paid to score goals.

  10. Bogans, you’re an idiot. The toughest guys Dubinsky has ever fought are Bieksa, Carcillo and Hartnell and they all wrecked him.
    As for Shelley, of course he’s not a great player, but he’s been putting in hard work in this league for a long, long time. There’s a good reason he’s played in over 50 games a season for over a decade now when hundreds and hundreds of enforcers have come and gone in the same time period.
    As for Rinaldo, if you think he sucks you don’t know hockey. He’s a 21 year old rook who is very arguably the best hitter to come into the league in years. He skates well and provides a much needed spark. And… he has the same amount of goals as Dubinsky does in less games.
    Dubinsky is just another Rag with a big mouth who doesn’t back it up.
    Lastly, it’s cute that you put Sean Avery in the same sentence as Brandon Prust when talking about tough guys. Really shows your knowledge of the game.
