Dan Carcillo got a lot of respect in Philadelphia for the way he played the game of hockey. That has likely ended.

Speaking to a Chicago fan panel, Carcillo, now a Blackhawk took the opportunity to launch a couple of unprovoked attacks on the Flyers organization. I’ve always liked Carcillo, and whether or not he was pandering to the fan base, he just lost a lot of respect in my book.

Carcillo noted that he had “zero” respect for Flyers’ coach Peter Laviolette, and that bad goaltending is what cost the Flyers the Stanley Cup in 2010 against the Blackhawks. When speaking of goaltending he could have only been pointing the finger at one person – Michael Leighton, now the Flyers backup goalie, but the starter in 2010.

Dan Carcillo isn’t the first player in the history of sports to speak out against a coach or former coach, and he isn’t the last to call out a teammate’s performance. Nonetheless, the Car Bomb’s explosion has put him in bad company, and will likely not earn him any cheers upon his return to Philly. IF, of course, he’s even in the lineup.Similar Posts:
