When Burke caught wind of Larkin’s comments, Burke said he thinks it is “stupid” and that the Red Wings center should “get on a plane or keep your mouth shut.”

On Tuesday, Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill spoke to reporters and when asked about Burke’s comments, Blashill defended Larkin.

“All I can say is I don’t think there is a guy who loves hockey more than Dylan,” Blashill said “Or works harder on a nightly basis, or works harder in practice, more than Dylan.

“I’ll let Dylan speak for himself about his comments, but I would never, ever question the passion, or love, for the game, or work ethic (of Larkin). To me, I didn’t hear Brian Burke, I didn’t read Dylan’s comments, I don’t play attention to any of that stuff, all I know is nobody has more passion for hockey, passion for the Red Wings or Detroit, nobody has more work ethic than him.”

Nation, what do you make of Larkin’s comments about preferring rest over being selected to be part of the NHL All-Star team?
