Not good words to hear from one of your players.
Somebody should tell Sammy it's frustrating when you're down 3-0 and you have to watch him piss away time by screwing around with the puck then losing it.

Just because a player signs a contract it does not give them a right to ice time. They have to earn it. If he can't see that, quite frankly maybe we don't need him here.

I liked the Samsonov signing. I thought he'd be a definite upgrade over Zednik and would welcome him with open arms. I'd even attribute his bad play so far to just being in a funk. But comments like these do not endear him to me. The team is playing relatively well and all he can think about is his ice time.
