from Mike Brophy of Sportsnet,
Adam Burish sure picked a funny time to start a rivalry with one of the best defenceman in the NHL.
While his teammates were celebrating their thrilling Stanley Cup victory on the ice at the Wachovia Center Thursday, the fringe NHLer was more worried about dissing Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Chris Pronger. Asked by a reporter what he thought of Pronger, whom many believe could have won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs even though his team lost, Burish called Pronger and idiot and added if he saw him on the ice he might punch him.
“He had his chance during the series, didn’t he” Pronger said. “Why is he worrying about me instead of celebrating winning the Cup? Boy, it just goes to show how much I was in his kitchen for him to be talking about me five minutes after he wins the Cup.”
