"It's not even disappointing anymore, it's starting to get … I'm starting to get angry," Robin Lehner said after Buffalo's 4-2 loss to Vancouver on home ice last night. "This is all talk. We've got to look ourselves in the mirror here. It's disrespectful. I think it's disrespectful when we have a game plan, we're going through things - the last few days we've just been going through on how to play our second period.
"You know, Coach brought it up there, you know, coming up with a good game plan. We do the exact opposite. We don't do what he said. That gets me angry; I think it gets a lot of guys angry. Disrespectful, I think, is the word."
" … We haven't done anything in this League," Lehner continued later. "[Captain Brian Gionta] won a Cup. With all respect to him, he's done something in this League. The rest of us, we haven't. End of story.
"We've got to stop thinking after we win a game we're Chicago or Boston or [whoever] we think we are, I don't know. But it's time. It's time to realize that we're a grinding hockey team that's got to follow the structure and start listening to our coach and start respecting this team and respecting our coach."
Obviously a tough one that weighed on the players after the game. We have more in last night's game recap.
