    Unsure why it got locked in the first place

    I watched the video, pretty horrific. I suppose its warranted though, players just voicing their frustrations with management, people do that in EVERY job, being caught on camera though is another thing.

    The driver is the biggest jerk in this whole incident.

    Its really not a big deal lol, video coach Raymond and Duchene were seen laughing and talking at practice, every team has players that have issues with coaching and have all had incidents like this, ottawa were just unlucky to be the first ones to run into a POS uber driver that didnt care about losing his job for some quick money

    Apparently the players involved released a statement and apologized for the incident.

    As well since I am on my phone a few players and Boucher dealt with it before the tape got releases according to tsn website

    Uber's response is pretty hilarious:

    “Filming or recording passengers without their consent is totally unacceptable and if reported / detected we will investigate + take action to preserve our communities privacy and integrity. In this specific case, we made efforts to have the video taken down.

    Too many people on HFBoards are the Borowieckis/Bouchers of their respective workplaces, which is why they are not privy to the fact that these types of discussions are rather common.

    This. We've all *****ed about something our boss has said/done, even if we like said boss. It's the way of the world, even for millionaire professional athletes it seems. Someone tells you to do something a certain way, it fails miserably, and you get mad and ***** about it with friends afterwards.

    It's a bad look on our players, especially Duchene and Wideman. Since coaches are obviously in tune with the team they live with day in and day out, this might explain why Wideman is kept astray most games and sheds light on Duchene as well, who continues to look like en entitled diva. Now in camp #TradeDuchene. Some sterling, hard-nosed two-way play and a lot of "Yes sir, thank you sir, of course sir," humility out of him will sway me, though.

    Well, if you were Duchene, you would likely be sucking up right now too.

    These players are professionals, there is a time and place for that discussion. I would lose my job if this happened to me.

    Agreed that the driver is the biggest *****e in the situation.

    The Sens franchise is a joke.

    I personally think this is good for the team. Even good for the league. Obviously these concerns haven't been brought up or dealt with before. Now it's known and can be dealt with. These players like any employee have every right to voice concern, displeasure or opinions it's your work/team.

    Nice to see players bond over these kinda things. There will be no mutiny in Ottawa.

    It was fine he recorded it...kind of crap that he released it. But, also, in an ever increasing world where views matter on social media more than decency, you just can’t open your mouth like that around the public, it’s not even professional (regardless of Whitney’s tweet).

    This was the best thing to happen to Melynk. Now he has an excuse when he trades Duchene, instead of it seeming like a money issue.

    Everyone has those moments where they are laughing with someone but they want to kill the other person on the inside lol. Especially if it's a colleague or boss that annoys you all the time.

    Even Kipreos and Armstrong were talking about it this morning and both said on NHL teams, players rag on coaches way more than they praise them... But the difference is that these guys got caught doing it

    I dont blame these guys at all doing it cause everyone does with their jobs, i just shake my head at how all the negative news is always Sens stuff it seems

    everyone talks **** about their bosses....

    it's not the worst thing in the world, but what is pretty bad is what they're saying is probably true. aka, the players know their systems aren't working, they know the coaches aren't doing **** all, and just put out the same stuff day after day. i mean, pretty demoralizing.

    IMO, Duchene is the one who gets the worst of this. As a team captain, you should be expected to back up coaching in front of the young rookies and show leadership. I think Sens should take the A away from him. That is just a a very poor scene from him, he should be the link between coachinstaff and players and if there's a problem with the coachies you settle it with them in private or take it to the higher-ups (in this case Dorion).

    Aside that, meh. Wideman AFAIK was already known to have been somewhat "questionable" with his attitude. The other players didn't really comment. Uber driver is POS. And everyone already knew what a trainwreck the Sens were.

    I watched it again last night, and really it isn't bad at all. I'm kind of shocked that nothing really bad was said and it could have caught things that were absolutely brutal.
