Réjean Tremblay takes a hard shot at Shea Weber and accuses him of being rude

Shea Weber's absence from the team has been the subject of much discussion this season, not only because he has not played in any games, but also because the team captain has not been very forthcoming with media members.

We remember the episode where Weber ignored the journalists during the visit of the Habs in Vancouver last month.

Obviously, some journalists do not appreciate the captain's attitude towards the media and a veteran journalist did not hesitate to put Weber through the wringer.

As reported by my colleague Keven Mawn of Fanadiens.com, Réjean Tremblay bluntly stated that No. 6's actions were nothing short of disgraceful during his recent column in the Journal de Montréal.

"Before we worked out the details for a Genesis interview, he told me about this Weber, the Montreal Canadiens' reigning captain, who refused to come out and support his teammates, to cheer on Kent Hughes and Martin St. Louis in person, and who is too rude to even talk to reporters when they travel out West with the CH. A real shame."

"How come everyone slept through the gas in this case? Weber is the captain of the CH, but we were weighing the chances and merits of Brendan Gallagher. The poor guy we saw as a future captain is falling apart and now we're talking about Nick Suzuki as the future "C" wearer."

"We forget that the captain is in Vancouver, that he hasn't come to meet his teammates in Montreal except once in November, that he saw Marc Bergevin and Dominique Ducharme get fired and replaced by Hughes and St. Louis and that His Lordship is still too haughty to address the rabble."

Let's just say that Tremblay, who is not used to having his tongue in his pocket, was not soft on Weber.

But on the other hand, since he is still on the list of players of the Habs, perhaps it is a strategy of the team's management and Weber must say as little as possible about his future Montreal.

But this is just a hypothesis on my part and since his contract was almost traded to the Arizona Coyotes at the trade deadline, it is very likely that he will leave the organization very soon.
