Wilson Gives Them Hell

No surprise right?

Wrong, the them isn’t the players, it’s the media:

““It was an exhibition game – it didn’t bother me at all,” Wilson said Sunday. “What bothers me is being asked asinine questions while you’re trying to give young players a chance.”

Good for him. Wilson gave to the beat boys after another round of stupid questions comparing last years team with this one after 4 meaningless exhibition games.

“We’re not going to win the Stanley Cup this year. There’s a news flash for you.”

Once again I love his candid replies to the press. Good on him.

    Maybe Wilson should be a guest writer on TSM?

    Good stuff. They’re both excellent quotes that caught my eye as well. The best part is: there’s so much more to come.

    Had to laugh at his tearing a strip of the media so early. However I thought he was a tad hard on Pogge.

    However what Wilson is showing is that he will criticize any player who screws up from rookies to stars. I like that.

    Soon the beat reporters who bemoaned the “country club” atmosphere that existed for the players under the previous regime will be realizing that the “Country club” atmosphere that existed for them under Paul Maurice is over as well.

    There’s a new sheriff in town…..
