Elliotte Friedman On Glenn Healy

Just had an interesting quote on Prime Time Sports that I loved.

The conversation was about how rivalries are made in the playoffs (IE; Vancouver and Chicago) and how they carryover to the regular season. He then brought up how Glenn Healy will still tell him that he hates Ottawa after all these years due to the playoff rivalries.

I guess we were not being homers in believing Healy is biased against the organization

It's like being told that Matt Cooke is a dirty player.

You can't say that! Didn't you hear? He's reformed.

Poor Matt. He worked so hard, it's so unfair that his reputation is used against him. So unfair.

I believe it.

Just like I believe Glenn Healey is too much of a professional journalist to allow his biases to interfere with his analysis.

I don't believe it.

Leafs fans can't stop falling all over themselves to come here tell us that this so-called "rivalry" is all in our heads, and that nobody in Leafs-land actually cares one whit about it. Now you're trying to tell me that it's actually true, after all these years?

Healey is so indifferent to the Sens that he hates the Sens.

Makes more sense than any one of Healey's rants. I'll buy it.

He hates the Sens too?

He's always ripping on the Leafs, I guess he's holding a grudge because he didn't get the GM job after JFJ was fired.

I barely remember Healy playing for the Leafs, he must have been the backup that rarely played & hated us from the bench.

I get the feeling that he hates everyone and everything.

At least we have a reason now when it comes to Ottawa.

Healy is just an all-around hater, in the sort of edgy contrarian sort of way.

Ferraro, now there is a colour guy who can dish out hate with a touch of class.

His call on that epic Stefan empty net miss is one of my favourite play calls of all time. Love Ray.

Healy hates the Sens so much he thinks Karlsson is the best defenseman in the league.

You can only let your hate blind you so much. If he didn't change his opinion of Karlsson he would have just looked even more stupid.

He'd have a hard time disputing facts.

According to Healy he's just 'telling it like it is'.

That was a very interesting read.

Favourite part was this:

"people in Montreal were mad, wondering why I would show Karlsson during a game the Canadiens were winning. Uh, maybe because he won the ****–ing Norris Trophy last season?"

Maybe he hates them even more BECAUSE Karlsson is the best defenseman in the NHL... you know, like every other anti-Sens homer

Neither do most Leaf fans. There's a reason for that.

I read this thread title and just had a vision of Elliotte Friedman going to town on Glenn Healy.

It was only last year when everyone was starting to take notice that Healy said " He (Karlsson) doesn't do anything good, not big, not fast" that was late February last year.
