Well, I see the starting line-up…I know the other guy across the bench- it’s easy for people to say, “Well, put the Sedins out there, it’s deflated”…I can’t put our players at risk that way. But the line-up that he had- I am not going to put those types of players at risk…and that’s what ensues. I’m not proud of it. I’ve apologized to every one of the players involved in it…I don’t feel great about it at all, especially Lainer- that’s my biggest mistake- was putting Lainer in that line-up, and I’ll kick myself forever, not having someone else there, but I’d do the same thing again if it came that way, cuz I can not put anyone else out there not knowing what’s going to happen.
