"Petry hid on the ice, he's not going to hide in the showers''

Our friends at HabsolumentFans revealed Jeff Petry's true color with this Bob Hartley interview.

Bob Hartley agreed to comment on Kassian's hit on Montembeault. He slammed Petry's reaction and post-game explanations.

"He contradicted himself in his press briefing: 'I didn't see it... But it's not my job to do that. I apologize, but you don't have to be Rocky Balboa. I'll put some of the blame on him but where were the other four? At worst, if you don't react, after a whistle: Evander Kane who just arrived, McDavid, Draisaitl... Boom. I used to say to my players: 'He's big, okay. But pinch another one with a good check and tell the guy he's our target because of Kassian. The whole game.» - Bob Hartley

Then he revealed what would have happened in the players' room between the second and third periods if he had been the Habs' head coach at the time. It would have been a big deal in the dressing room!

"I'm going to tell you a story... I'm telling you, it would have flown around the room! This is a family. It's not a field hockey club, it's a family. They're up to their necks in shit, can we at least show some semblance of unity? But it's not a surprise, there hasn't been one all year because there's no leadership in this club. I'll tell you one thing, I would have shuffled the five of them after the period in front of everyone and I would have made sure to tell Chantal Machabée after the game to make sure that Petry was the first one to speak to the journalists. He hid on the ice, he's not going to hide in the showers!" - Bob Hartley

Here is the hit if you missed it:

Wow, truly spoken like a leader! Good for you Bob, show Jeff what it takes to be a true leader.
