Paul MacLean wants Brandon Prust to know he's not fat, just husky
Senators coach Paul MacLean took exception to Brandon Prust's comments about him. He's not fat. He's just husky.
The Montreal-Ottawa series ticked up an extra notch following the brutal collision that led to a Lars Eller injury and Eric Gryba suspension. The trash-talking was quick to follow, which makes any good series better.
Specifically, Canadiens forward Brandon Prust took exception to Senators coach Paul MacLean putting the blame on the Eller hit on "No. 61" on the Canadiens. That would be Raphael Diaz, who left Eller in a very compromising position that led to the hit.
In response, Prust had some less-than-flattering remarks for MacLean, calling him a "bug-eyed, fat walrus."
MacLean spoke to the media Saturday about that and suggested it was pretty offensive. Or at worst, it was simply wrong.
"Bug-eyed? I've never been called that before. That's a new one. Walrus? Meh. That's too easy," MacLean said. "But I'll tell you one thing: I am not fat. I might be husky, but I'm not fat. I took offense to that"
Take note, Prust. The man is not fat. If we hadn't found out it was John Elway, I'd think MacLean was really Eric Cartman's father.
