The White House visit is supposed to be a team event to celebrate the team's accomplishments, and Thomas used it as an opportunity to share his political stances. I'm pretty sure this led other Bruins to be asked questions about how they felt about Thomas's absence instead of about the experience of the day or their Cup win.
So yeah that might be what people are referring to. I'm not gonna argue about his political views or whether or not he has the right to do what he did(I know he does). Point is he put himself before his team and some people have a problem with that.
