Alan May openly suggested this week that the Canadian media is out to spotlight transgressions by Caps players, and that this may have contributed to Green’s punishment.
“They’re always trying to poke holes in the Capitals, and it’s the same reason that Mike Green was suspended,” May said on 106.7 The Fan’s Mike Wise Show Monday afternoon, when asked about criticism of the Caps’ netminders. “I thought it was created by TSN up in Canada and their announcers, sitting there on a Friday night. The only angles they showed of the Mike Green hit were very poor angles that looked like it was a bad hit, and when you go in super-slow motion, it makes it look worse all the time. And I thought the Mike Green hit, no one even noticed it the other night. And they made a big deal, and he winds up getting three games out of it.”
The conversation moved on, but May—who is Canadian—later returned to this subject, again pounding away on the Toronto media pack.
