Sabres coach Ted Nolan called his own team 'a pee wee team'

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

Buffalo Sabres head coach Ted Nolan opened his post-game press conference on Monday afternoon by saying "sometimes if you have nothing good to say it's better not to say too much."

He then went on to call his team a pee wee team.

That was like an NHL team playing against a pee wee team. They dominated us from start to finish. They did all the right things and everything that we could do wrong, we did wrong.

Dave Davis has the audio of Nolan's full press conference, and as you can tell, he's not too happy. Nobody expected the Sabres to be good this season, but the Anaheim Ducks walked into First Niagara Center for the Columbus Day matinee on Monday and, as Nolan said, absolutely dominated. The final score was 5-1 Anaheim, and the final shot total was an absurd 44-12. Shot attempts? 75 to 35.

Pee wee, indeed.
