TAMPA - Marc Denis used words such as "humiliating" and "frustrating" to describe not being allowed to dress for the final game of the regular season and the playoffs.
But he acknowledged he blew his chance to retain the Lightning's No. 1 goaltending job.
"I was given opportunities to be the guy," he said Monday. "It's no secret I did not like the way things shook down. I'm not being disrespectful by saying that. It was very humiliating. It was frustrating.
"But I know better than to argue with a decision that was made in the right frame of mind and for the good of the team. I'm not putting anybody under the spotlight here."
Denis, 29, was a major disappointment during the regular season with a 3.19 goals-against average and a league-worst .883 save percentage.
"I was disappointed that I didn't meet my own expectations and more disappointed than anything I didn't meet my team's expectations," he said. "That's the one thing that stings the most."
"From Day 1 since Marc Denis has been here, he's been a pro," coach John Tortorella said. "Is he unhappy with me? I'm sure he is. ... But I would not change my decisions, what I did there."
