Maxime Talbot Calls Alex Ovechkin “A Real Douche”

Maxime "I have fewer goals in my NHL career than you have in one season" Talbot called Alex Ovechkin "a real douche" during an interview with a Pittsburgh radio station.

Talbot then stated: "I just hate the guy." 

Talbot, who has split time between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins of the AHL, seems to have forgotten about not giving the other team "bulletin board fodder." 

I understand Talbot is trying to promote 2011's Winter Classic, which will be a game featuring the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ovechkin’s Washington Capitals, but he could have come across a little more mature.  

Calling the two-time NHL MVP "a real douche" is fairly childish and not a very smart way to promote the NHL's second most heavily hyped event.

Hopefully someone from the NHL office gets in touch with Mr. Talbot and lets him know that this is the NHL, not the WWE, and the "morning zoo" radio comments do not help the game in the least.
