Pronger On Burish Remarks

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.”

Burish is a tool.  He says crap about nearly everyone.  I don’t seem him ever playing for a team other than Chicago.

Not usually one to say nice things about Progner, but I like his reply.

The only way Pronger knows how to be the bigger man is if it involves boarding a guy with his elbows up and talking about how it’s just physics.

I’ve been around hockey most of my life but i’ve never saw amount of crap said by a team that won a stanley cup.From Burish’s retarded comments to writing Pronger’s gay it makes them look like sore winners. The lack of class is astounding.

Seriously, if Pronger fought Burish would be dead. this is the same guy that fought abunch of middle weights like Joe Dipenta, Dallas Drake, and Wes Walz. To top it off, He fought Derek Dorsett and loses. This is a guy who was scratched in the Finals and when he was on the ice, barely noticeable and never once thought about initiating a fight with anyone.

All he is good for is making those retarded faces like Max Lapierre and laughing during warmups.

Chicago can have this but the real fun will be watching the blackhawks dismantle their Cup team starting in 19 days.

If he saw him on the ice?
He was a healthy scratch for half the games and he got just over 15 minutes of ice time in the whole series.
If he saw him on the ice?. He just about got on the ice.. LOL  LOL

I was hoping Pronger would be a little more bush league.  Why not say something like “Well, he may be right, he had a great view from the press box”?

Pronger wears a size 7 skate, he is compensating for all things small.

This was Holmgren today: “Highly unlikely” this team will remain intact.

Flyers got $9 million to start with in cap money. Rathje’s contract finally comes off the books. There is a feeling inside the team that flyers are going to trade carter for a goalie. Jeff Carter’s career stats in playoffs are 41 games played, 19 points and -11. That stat is alarming about a player after 4 years of playoff experience.

Carter is the only chip you have to get a goalie. The flyers can easily replace him with an 2 25 scorers that are willing to work in his own end. Breire will go back to center but needs to tighten up defensively. Backstabber Boucher will be traded for picks because there are plenty of teams that will need a backup. Leighton will be your backup. Flyers have to do resign RFA like carcillo. sadly,  asham is gone ( i think that’s a big mistake).

Although Hartnell had a great finals he still on the bubble to traded. i wouldn’t surprised if mark recchi is resigned by flyers and they look at andrew ladd because he played under peter laviolette and knows the system.

Burish is an idiot. 

He logged 15 minutes of ice-time in three games of the series and less than 10 minutes after the cup has been won he has this to say about one of the best defensive players in the modern era:

“should have worn that out here tonight, he was terrible”

Bowman just drew a red-line through that Steve’s name for contract negotiations, enjoy your career Mr. Burish. it’s all downhill from here.
