    The rumour mill is working OT...

    Remember when this was reported awhile back?

    "We've offered our services to the Canadiens in the past and they said no each time. I think that Larry would be very interested."

    Larry Freaking Robinson... turned down when HE offered his services. WTF?!?!

    Yeah, I give Ron Maclean a pass on that one. The man has been working with Grapes for so long, it's bound to have affected his brain.

    I just felt that his comments kind of all ran together but were actually separate thoughts. Not to be insensitive, I just don't think it was a direct comparison of hockey players to 9/11 first-responders.

    Not a great analogy... seems like he made that up on the fly...

    I think we all know Ron Maclean "well" enough to know that he would never intentionally make that comparison.

    He's been overly dramatic before, and this was a case where he was doing that again.

    Remember when Bania gave Jerry that suit and wanted a meal at Menzies as payment. Then he kept ordering soup to get Jerry to keep bringing him to Menzies. Laughing3 Laugh1
