Willie Mitchell On The Glen Healy Tweet

from Goerge Richards of On Frozen Pond,

Panthers captain Willie Mitchell said he heard Sportsnet analyst Glenn Healy disrespecting the Panthers during SN's trade day coverage Monday and decided he couldn't let it sit.

Mitchell sent out a tweet directed at Healy that got plenty of play as it spiced up a fairly lame trading deadline....

"We're not satisfied with what we've accomplished by no means,'' Mitchell said. "We have one goal and that's to make the postseason and we've said that from the beginning of the season. We've worked our tails off. Ownership has given us a chance. I just thought it was uncalled for from the outside to discredit what we've done to this point.

"Again, we haven't accomplished anything, but, we were a last place team in the league and we're fighting with a team that won the Stanley Cup not that long ago. I thought it was uncalled for. We talk about the positive things in the Florida market. We're playing better, we're in every game. We try to do things the right way. I think people are seeing that.''

Mitchell added that there's a challenge of playing in a non-traditional market especially one like South Florida. He says he and his teammates relish the opportunity to get things right here.

It was a good comment by Healy to distract from the Tweet TSN aired, if nothing else!

Why would he want to distract from the TSN tweet?

Healy and his filterless piehole lol god bless him.

Jagr may not make them a SC champ but he sure may help that team upset a team or two in the playoffs especially with Loungo in net and that kid Ekblad on D who looks and plays like a seasoned vet already.

Good for Mitchell. I don’t know one person that likes Glenn Healy or the pompous Toronto based media. Panthers have a decent team and if the same players made up the Leafs they would be planning the parade.

If they make the playoffs, they could be the most dangerous dark horse team.

A national treasure, to be sure:

“...a guy like Datsyuk, not all the god-blessed talent in the world, but he’s a hard worker…”

-Glenn Healy

If anyone doesn’t have god-blessed talent, it’s Glenn Healy

Healy and his filterless piehole god bless him

Yes, god bless him, because we need more people like him being salivated over by people like yourself.  Long live Glenn Healy’s career!  He’s relevant, accurate, and insightful (see above example)! Living in the States, I’m thankful that I don’t have to listen to this red-faced buffoon or his younger, more dimwitted protege PJ Stock.  I’d rather listen to Doc/Edzo.  Sitting next to me.  *vomits*

Thanks for being the voice of many in the hockey world, Willie Mitchell.  You’ve made a new fan.  God bless you and your relevant, accurate, and insightful sentiment.
