I don’t blame Leon for responding the way he did. He’s frustrated and gives a “hockey player” answer… Jim didn’t like the answer and asked Leon why he’s “pissy”. No wonder Leon doesn’t want to give him anything to work with.

I agree with TreKronor.  These journalists think the athlete’s owe them something.  They purposely ask pointed questions to create relevance.  Good on Leon.

Dumpster fire all around. Team is struggling and looking for anyone to help put out the fire but instead the reporter decides to throw gas on it. Obviously he has written some barbed stories in the past and doesn’t expect to get called out on his BS. Oops.

Next time have the interview at center ice and drop the gloves.

Yeah what did Matheson expect?  A breakdown of their Pk?  Leon gave an honest answer.  Matheson said it himself, he didn’t like the answer and started calling Leon pissy….  then spector has the balls to call Leon immature?  I’m all for asking tough questions but don’t go crying to social media about it after the fact.  AND THERE ARE NO HOF reporters and certainly no special level of hockey reporter that players should take their own unprofessionalism.

Yep.  Whenever someone references a non-player as a Hall of Famer, I remind myself that Gary Bettman too is a Hall of Famer.

I’m thinking Matheson may get shunned for awhile….
