Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele (Mark Scheifele) paid for the team’s bad night in Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs and did not appreciate his long stay on the bench.
“I understand this decision and the source of the decision. I don’t agree with his choice that allowed me to sit on the bench, but we cannot agree on everything. He is the coach and I am the player. We don’t have to be on all topics. On the same page. He said, this is part of sports. I will prepare for the game, and that’s what I’m going to say here.”
However, Schaefer admitted that he experienced various emotions on the spot.
“When this happens, you will feel very frustrated. I understand what happened, but as I said, I disagree, especially the importance of the meeting and the timing of it. Now I am developing my own game . I’m working hard on stage, and that’s all you need to know.”
After Saturday’s duel ended his troops with the third setback in a row, Morris said he hoped the team would fully comply with their plan as proof of his decision. At least in the last 20 minutes of Saturday’s game, the player’s response seemed to satisfy him.
“I like our mood on the bench and in the third quarter. I love this band, I love Mark, I love everyone. We just have to stick to certain things. Now is a good time to get up.
“It’s time to evaluate these elements of our game, especially when you lose three games in a row. This is the best time to deal with your problems in this annoying situation.”
In the first 47 meetings of the campaign, Sheffield scored 54 points, including 18 goals.
