Glen Healy ranting......
 
I was just listening to GLEN HEALY rant here in Canada on Toronto's FAN 590 , making jokes about how this franchise is a joke, guy's like GILLES and MARTIN should just go away for the two minites a night they play, bashing WANG ( which doesn't bother me )

how does a goalie who had one good playoff in his career(93) get a job with the NHLPA and hockey night and CANADA?

he's never said anything good about our franchise since we let him sign on with the RAGS in 94 as a backup haha

just wondering your guys thoughts
i enjoyed our 93 run but seems like he has some annamosity towards us since his playing days

he wanted big $$$$ for his 93' run and no team would pay a guy for a good few weeks.

Mustang2750 02-16-2011 07:32 PM

Unfortunately for him nobody gives a **** what Glen Healy thinks.

Healy is a total crank and a lame hack. I'll never think about him the same after his shameless supporting of the NHL players over the strike and lost season.

BOSSY1126 02-16-2011 07:34 PM

i heard the rant - pissed me off. what a jerk, can't stand healy. two faced.

first, he's a hypocrite on so many levels. when he's on the player's association he's one way, then does an about face saying the players (gillies and martin) don't belong in the league for their actions? the hosts kinda called him on that and healy pulled a talbot and turtled.

they really ripped the isles, some of it was fair, but most was offside and i expect more from healy, as an explayer.

another part that bothered me was how healy said that a torrey-arbour team has never and would never 'act that way' - as though vukota/baumgartner on the NYR after the lafontaine hit never happened.

what a complete joke.

call the isles a joke for the right reasons, and there are many, but don't lose your own credibility (whatever's left of it) to pile on a franchise for doing nothing except standing up for itself - not when other franchises do it all the time.

i'm not defending the actions of the two suspended players (although Martin's wasn't really fair since he completely let-up on the punch, as the video shows) but to use this unfortunate incident to dump on your team, your players as a PA exec and a guy who should know better - classless and shameful.

Someone should make him turtle

Whata ******* if I've ever seen one

Isles Junkie 02-16-2011 08:20 PM

According to the rest of the league, we don't deserve a franchise. Good **** em. It'll just be all the sweeter when this team finally does get good.

BelovedIsles 02-16-2011 10:08 PM

He may want to re-think if he should still be involved in the NHL.

Macch 02-16-2011 10:23 PM

Glen who? *YAWN*

PROMputt 02-16-2011 10:43 PM

The only joke is Healy. He talks about the Islanders stinking and being a joke and then says the way you do it is like Pittsbugh when you draft Fleurry, Crosby and Malkin. HEllO!! What a freaking moron. Pitt was losing and bankrupt and stunk so they could draft them. HMMMM makes you think doesn't it. And this guy is supposed to be a hockey expert? Please, go away.

I listened to the clown for about 30 seconds and turned it off. That just pissed me right the hell off. **** that guy. I hope he gets fired from CBC for that ****!!!!

BillD 02-17-2011 07:04 AM

Glen Healy is the Keith Olbermann of hockey analysts.
His hatred for the Islanders is equivalent to Olbermann's hatred for Sarah Palin and borders on the psychotic.

We didn't let him sign with the Rag$, We didn't protect him in the 1993 expansion draft, and Anaheim selected him. They then lost him to Tampa in the second phase of the expansion draft (the 1992 expansion teams were able to pick players off the 1993 expansion teams b/c of a rule change b/t the years)/ Tampa then traded him to the Rag$.

Healy felt slighted by this since the team had just had a great run to the Wales Conference Finals a few weeks earlier, and has had an issue with the Isles ever since.

Chapin Landvogt 02-17-2011 09:47 AM

Wow!!!

I see that as pretty unprofessional. Just lost LOTS of respect for a guy who was on my fences anyways.

Then again, I felt something like Ference talking out against Paille's hit - no matter what he thinks and how right he might be - was thoroughly unprofessional. You share that opinion with Paille personally and in the locker room - where it stays. That doesn't get expressed to the press.

Some guys just dunno where to draw the line...

BillD 02-17-2011 10:31 AM

Healy is ass.

All other former Islanders who were *reported* to have said some negative things about the team have straightened it out like Ferraro.
Some poster called him a crank and that fits if you are keeping it civil.
I remember the time Healy was asked someting about the Isles power play slump around 2006 and his response was a completely out of context low shot about the age of Yashin's girlfriend Carol Alt. Totally uncalled for and out of line.
Healy is just a dick.

hockeygoon15 02-17-2011 10:42 AM

He used to live across the street from my grandmother in Northport. I remember going over there for an autograph when I was young and his wife answered the door. I may have only been 9 at the time, but I knew a smokin hot chick when I saw one. :amazed::amazed:

It has to do with servers and database. Just do what you did.

TheBoss22 02-17-2011 02:05 PM

First off I'd like to preface by saying I'm obviously a huge Islander fan for life. And I'm also a fan of Healy's interviews as he has the gift for gab, and tells great behind the scene stories.

Before listening to the interview, I first read everyone's posts and I was fully expecting to put Healy on my sh*tlist.

Now after listening to it, it's really no big deal and is consistent with what Heals has been saying for the past couple of years with regards to the Isles.

I think his biggest problem is having Gillies blind side a player to the head, hit him while he's down, and egg him to come get more of a beating.

Where Heals is coming from is having pride for the Isles Jersey. And when you do the stuff that Gillies did you are only tarnishing it.

Heals has said previously:
He loved playing on LI
Arbour was his favorite coach
Billy Smith played a big role in his development

Heals is not an Isles hater. He just wants the Isles to get back the respect they once had with Arbor/Torrey at the helm. Yes, it's big shoes to fill but hopefully we'll get there in the near future.

And honestly, I have heard far far worse from posters on this message board. What Healy said during this interview is a fart in the wind.

lost35* 02-18-2011 04:16 AM

how can anyone hate Healy, were you around for 93

Potvins Cups 02-18-2011 06:48 AM

Healy is a tool. End of story.

Steve55 02-18-2011 02:45 PM

Healy should have mentioned about Talbot going after cooke that precipitated Martin going after him. Wang can move the team as well. Healy should realize that Wang has been discussing relocation possibilities.
