The Vegas Golden Knights have achieved a remarkable feat by reaching their second Stanley Cup Finals in just six seasons as an expansion team. However, coaches are not immune to making mistakes, and unfortunately, Bruce Cassidy is no exception.

Following Game 5, Cassidy made a comment during his analysis of the Golden Knights' performance against the Dallas Stars, comparing their 24 giveaways to the Arizona Coyotes. The remark implied that the Coyotes, a team that Cassidy perceived as lesser, would not be able to win with such numbers. This comment was unprofessional and bordered on being antagonistic, deviating from Cassidy's usual dialogue style.
«We had 24 giveaways," Cassidy said after Game 5. "I'm not sure you're beating the Arizona Coyotes in January with 24 giveaways. That's no disrespect to Arizona, but it's not the right way to play.»

After facing criticism for his disrespectful remarks, Cassidy issued an apology, acknowledging that his comment was unfair and admitting that it was a mistake to involve another team in the discussion.

But now, Cassidy regrets the remark and apologized.

"It was disrespectful," he said. "It was a dumb thing to say about puck management, to bring another team in."

Despite Cassidy's comments, it is worth noting that the Golden Knights did suffer a 4-1 loss to the Coyotes in Mullett Arena, but they only had two giveaways during that game.
