I struggled with the idea of posting about anything Dan Carcillo said. The only time I can recall doing such a thing is when Carcillo tweeted about finger-banging someone who was later revealed to be a CB reader (chronicled right… hither).
He quickly removed (and likely regretted) that comment.
But, this weekend, speaking at a Blackhawks fan forum, which was likely attended by about seven to nine people, Car Bomb went boom again, this time taking aim at former teammate Michael Leighton and… Peter Laviolette?
First up, Big Bear Michael Leighton. According to some Twitterererererers in attendance, one of which admitted that Carcillo’s comment were mostly tongue-in-cheek, Car Bomb said: “If we had better goaltending, maybe we would have put up a fight.”
Ouch. While I certainly can’t blame anyone for, um, blaming Leighton about anything (he’s what the Spanish call El Terrible), throwing a former teammate under the bus is bush league. Not to mention inaccurate. The Flyers did put up a fight. Leighton gave up the soft winner to Patrick Kane, but can hardly be blamed for the Flyers losing the series. The Blackhawks were a better team.
About Lavs? Not many details exist, but Carcillo said something to the effect of having “zero respect” for the Flyers coach.
We didn’t reach out to Lavs for comment, but we’re guessing his response would have been somewhere along the lines of go fuck yourself.
