"I want to take this opportunity to extend my absolute honest apologies to Marty Raymond".
"I thought it was very, very mild, believe it or not", Maurice said Tuesday after the Jets practised.
"Nothing is more important to us during this rebuild than making sure our players and coaches are fully committed to our plan, our values and our system of play", the statement said. We're moving forward and it's hard for me to even talk about because it makes me emotional and it's not the person I am, or any of us.
While it's obvious the players didn't know they were being recorded and the publication of the video online seems like a blatant invasion of privacy, it's still out there and should serve as a reminder to all professional athletes.
Seven Senators players apologized late Monday night after Postmedia published a story with a video of them criticizing their team and coach Martin Raymond in a conversation in front of an Uber driver in Phoenix, Ariz., last week. "We dealt with this long before this video was released. We haven't been playing our best hockey so maybe this can help this team move forward.", Stone said.
Thomas Chabot, Dylan DeMelo, Matt Duchene, Alex Formenton, Chris Tierney, Chris Wideman, and Colin White - have issued an apology to their teammates and coaches after a video of them was posted to YouTube by the Ottawa Citizen newspaper on Monday.
"A little bit of notice, then you'd know to keep your mouth shut and not say anything sensitive".
Senators chief operating officer Nicolas Ruszkowski says the team wants to ensure that people's reputations are not "impaired by voyeuristic journalism". "It's something I never want anyone to go through with it".
On the tape several Sens players, who were smart to be calling an Uber and not driving, were talking trash about the team and coaches while being driven home.
At one point, Duchene says he hasn't paid attention in any of Raymond's meetings for three weeks.
The organization quickly released the following statement on behalf of the players involved. "If you can tell we're really pleased with our".
The matter has raised concerns about player privacy.
Senators head coach Guy Boucher said he - like many others on the team - was sad to see Raymond get embarrassed. "So let's get that straight", Toronto coach Mike Babcock said at the Maple Leafs' morning skate on Tuesday. "Right now, it's an off-the-cuff conversation with members of the Ottawa Senators, but it could be a private conversation between husband and spouse - what about between lawyers and clients and attorney-client privilege and all the stuff that comes into that, so we need better guidelines". And defenseman Travis Dermott expressed some sympathy for the Ottawa players.
