Ex-Flyer Carcillo rips Leighton, Laviolette
Dan Carcillo once said that thinking isn’t good for him, and at the Chicago Blackhawks' convention on Saturday, he clearly wasn’t.
"Thinking ... is not that good in hockey, or thinking in general for me," Carcillo said to a fan panel.
The ex-Flyer wasn’t bashful when speaking about his former club. Instead, he decided to bash his old teammate and coach.
According to Yahoo! Sports
, Carcillo, now a Blackhawk, ripped Michael Leighton for his performance in net during the 2010 Stanley Cup, which the Flyers lost in six games to Chicago.
“If we had better goaltending maybe we would have put up a fight," he said.
His sharp words weren't limited to players.
Carcillo, who was benched for all but two games during the 2010 Stanley Cup, stated that he has “zero” respect for Flyers coach Peter Laviolette.
“It is, of course, worth mentioning that Carcillo now plays for the same Blackhawks that defeated the Flyers and he was speaking to a fan panel, so he was likely playing to his audience,” writes Harrison Mooney. “But these jokes probably won't play in Philadelphia.”
