    Some will. The whole “having reasons” to hate Reinhart thing ...

    Personally I like that he’s speaking up. Good or bad. Too often the media go to the Eichel, Skinner, Pominville, Hutton, Ullmark for their repetitive takes. I’d like to see more Reinhart, Bogosian, Larsson, Scandella, Rodriguez takes mixed in :dunno:

    and people are using ONLY the game saying the defensive support sucks, which it did. But he's talking about more than this past game. And with that Reinhart was correct. The goaltending has been shaky and needs to be better.

    It is kind of weird that Reinhart, actually came out and say this.

    I too would be interested in seeing this substantiated.

    It was mentioned here in the off season, who was the assistant who left last year? I cant remember his name.

    I can find nothing on this. Not that i don't believe you, but providing a link or an audio clip would definitely give your claim credibility - otherwise this just feels like hearsay.

    You can like Reinhart, and not like what he said. That was something best left in the locker room.

    There are a few posters that look for excuses to dislike Reinhart, but it goes the other way too.

    FWIW, I remember discussion of someone publicly expressing this sentiment about Housley as well, though I thought it was an opposing coach that made the remarks. I don't have a link for that either though. :dunno:

    In all deference to hearsay; hearsay is a lot more credible than this.

    No surprise to see stuff get overblown. Glad to see Reinhart wasn't just being critical of the goalies...this makes more sense. Hopefully media can move on but of course, when there's a fire to flame...

    That was one of Rex Ryan's favorite expressions. At the time we didn't realize he was talking about buying the next round of drinks.

    Maybe but I thought it was the assistant coach of the Sabres who left or got fired in the off season while he was going for another job, I feel like he went to Carolina or it was someone behind the bench of Carolina.

    This sounds more familiar. I want to say it was one of the Western Conference coaches at the time. I want to say someone from Minnesota or Chicago after playing us at home.

    Can we consider him a good #2 center at this point?

    Ok I see he was around Mitts today. Has he been playing center at all over the past 20 games or so?

    No he was with playing wing with Eichel on the top line then the past 2-3 games Mitts has centered him on the 2nd.

    People always change their controversial statements once they go viral.

    doesn't matter what we think, only matters what the room thinks.

    Exactly.
    Plus sometimes it’s sexier to believe there is drama, feelings hurt, harsh words were meant, and rifts in the locker room. Instead of something as boring as a statement being taken out of context and everyone reacting to it negatively.
