During the preview show of HBO's 24/7 "Road to the Winter Classic," former Ranger and current Flyer Jody Shelley called Brandon Dubinsky a weasel, to which the Rangers winger responded this way yesterday (via Daily News)...

"First of all, if I was him, I'd keep my mouth shut if I don't play, especially since I never see him on the ice," Dubinsky said of Shelley, who has played in only 10 of Philadelphia's 23 games this season. "He's usually just yapping from the bench, and I guess now he's yapping from behind the video camera. So that's about all I have to say.

"Jody Shelley - it won't be long before he's out of the league, because he's a terrible hockey player," he added.

And for good measure Dubinsky added this about Flyers defenseman Zac Rinaldo, who separated the shoulder of Michael Sauer in the preseason and took a run at Sean Avery in the first period Saturday...

"I think he's an idiot," Dubinsky said of Rinaldo. "And I think that, I mean, he's not really a good hockey player. So if that's what he tries to do to get under our skin, I don't think it works very well. He's not very effective at it. I think they should just keep putting him on the ice, because he's a liability against us."

...if the HBO executives didn't think they struck gold with last year's 24/7 series, they do now.

...i absolutely love the trash talking. You rarely see it anymore, other than a random 'Sloppy Seconds' comment. lol

...although with only one goal on the season, Dubinsky has left himself wide open.

Kyle Scott at Crossing Broad hits the nail on the head when he describes a possible reaction to Dubinsky's comments over at HBO...

"That sound you hear is an HBO producer masturbating feverishly in a darkened editing room somewhere."
