Ron Wilson In Need Of A Thicker Skin?

from Rob Pizzo of TheScore,

Yesterday, I posted a link to a story written by the Toronto Star’s Dave Feschuck.

The Leafs have refused to say much about the injury to James Reimer. First it was “whiplash”, then is was “concussion like symptoms”, but the fact remains that he has missed 9 games. Fans wanted answers, and Feschuck went to the person who might have some of them, Reimer’s mom.

I thought the article was a good read and the idea to call Mrs. Reimer was a great one. It was also entertaining because it gave us a look at what it’s like to be a concerned parent of an injured NHL’er. Ron Wilson didn’t agree:

“You call wives, parents … you don’t talk to the player? I don’t think that’s proper to be honest with you.”...

There is a huge difference between a coach challenging the media, and a coach who is acting like an immature child, Wilson is the latter.
