Robin Lehner openly criticized some NHL goalies

Robin Lehner, a very transparent human being, never has a tongue in cheek when situations that tickle his fancy arise. The Vegas Golden Knights goalie is under contract with the team until 2025, with a very reasonable salary of $5 million per season.

Obviously, Lehner is not amply satisfied with the salary he earns on average per season, considering the pay of some other goalies. He even revealed that he is underpaid, given his good stats, on The Cam and Strick Podcast.

Even the host agreed that Lehner had not been rewarded properly...

I can only agree with his words, considering the honors Lehner has accumulated over the years. He was a finalist for the Vézina Trophy, given to the best goalie in the NHL, in 2018-2019. In addition, he has won the William M. Jennings Trophy twice, given to the goaltending duo with the fewest goals allowed, in 2018-2019 and 2020-2021.

Lehner even chatted about his horrendous time with the Buffalo Sabres.


He's obviously not surprised about what's going on with the Sabres, regarding Jack Eichel's herniated disc. Remember that there is a conflict between the two clans about a neck surgery that Jack Eichel wanted to undergo for his long-term health and that would have been prevented by the American training.

In the past, Robin Lehner had suffered a huge foot injury, which, according to the goalie, was not taken seriously by the Sabres management. One could even say that they didn't care about the Swede's health at all.

Lehner surely wanted to make a cry from the heart, publicly, about the injustice. These are big revelations that have been issued from the goaltender. Hopefully, the NHL will take notice...
