“This guy has never had any coaching (at Michigan),” Lombardi said. “Jack just did what he wanted. Michigan is the worst. For hockey people, if you’ve got a choice between a kid — all things being equal — one’s going to Michigan, and one’s going to Boston University, you all want your player (going to BU). Michigan’s players — Red doesn’t coach. It’s ‘do what you want.’

Jack was a thoroughbred out there. But he was all over the place. He was awful as a hockey player."

...

Berenson, Johnson said, "is one of the finest coaches and men that I've met. For my general manager to rip me as a person and criticize me as a person and as a player and call me an awful hockey player is irresponsible and unprofessional."

Saw this on NHL network this morning, that's terrible of Lombardi to say. You don't criticize programs your not apart of at another level, that's just classless. And Johnson handled it the right way, he didn't take any shot's at Lombardi he just spoke what he thought was the truth. I think this situation is only going to get worse. I wonder how much longer Johnson will be a King
