If I had to guess, it's that now this is probably going to come up in every media scrum the rest of the year. It'll amplify if the team continues to play poorly, or any night Ullmark/Reinhart struggle in particular. Which is at best, annoying. At worst, demotivating. Not to mention the media tends to embellish or outright lie, so giving them ammo to do so is usually a bad decision. Depending on the severity of said lies, it can mess with a player/teams confidence... especially if they're already struggling, these people are human afterall trying to make it in the best league in the world... or worse their personal lives, their careers, etc. Just look at how twisted things got the last few years with Eichel and Murray/Bylsma, kids vs vets, Jack vs Lehner.
