"It was all words and no songs that Dallas Stars president Jim Lites offered yesterday when he called the team's stars Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin for the ”horseshit”."
"It was received not well by the players."
"I don't play for him," says Benn."
"Dallas president Jim Lites did not hold back when he sawn the team's superstars Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin after the Stars game against the Nashville Predators (which they also won with 2-0)."
"He was clear that the meager totals, as the duo accounted for in the year is not good enough – especially if you get hundreds of million in salary each year."
"– They're horseshit, frankly, I do not know how otherwise to express myself. The team was okay. But Benn and Seguin were terrible, he said, and continued:"
"– this is a stellar league, but our stars do not do the job. It's embarrassing and no one writes about it. Write it! They get their money, we assume that they will not be played each match they play."
"Not talked with Lites during the season"
"today, they met both of the players to the gathered press, and then they got the opportunity to fight back against the Lites."
" People have their opinions, but all they say is noise. When it occurs something like this within the organization, I try to keep it within the organization and sort it out face to face, " says Benn, a little bit sour according to the site Sportsnet."
"He says that he talked to Jim Lites during the season."
" I don't play for him. I play for all players in the team and for the coaches. I am proud to play in the Dallas Stars."
" I got a lot of messages on my phone yesterday, from the old lagkompisar and the like. The phone was almost going to explode, it was as if it was my birthday yesterday, " he continues."
"”We'll have to answer for it”"
"nor does Seguin say they have had no dialogue with the president and ceo, Jim Lites during the season."
"– this came as a bit of a surprise I guess, I didn't know how he felt. But just as I told you yesterday, I understand that we need to play better, Jamie also understand it. We both need to lead this team, " he says."
" I think everyone is frustrated over how it looked the last few years and now we get to answer for it."
