No.

It doesn't need to be explained.  It's a matter of common sense.  If Wilson did not like him, he would not publicly insult him like that.  It's clearly a joke.

Personally it's how guy's who're close talk to each other. What he's really saying is how tenacious he is.

Just got back from seeing some of the practice.  Took 3 of my kids, the 4th is going with her class.  I think the highlight was the look in Grabovski's eyes.  Totally intense.

Sounds like you had a good time. Grabovski's for real. I'm always impressed with his apparent effort and the things he says.

I like the fact that Grabs was taking faceoff tips from Steckel last week and then went 14 for 22 on Saturday night. I really like that he sees a guy who is good at something and then goes to him to learn and to get better. Grabovski is growing on a lot of Leafs fans who did not necessarily like him so much when he first came over.

I'll "move along" but it's not professional. Not at all. You wouldn't hear
Burke say it in public.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Burke and Wilson are two completely different personalities when in front of a microphone. Wilson has always been a little smirky and sarcastic. If you haven't watched the video of the comment, you can see that Wilson smiled the entire time he said it and the entire media scrum got a good chuckle out of it.

No I think by calling him a little bastard he is clearly stating that he is not big enough to play on his team.

Thanks for the link. I watched the video and you're right. It shows much better on tape.

Also, yes, that is a Tim Connolly sighting.
