Wow. Good on ya, Poile. Radulov is a selfish bastard (as I've said before, he's already said he's back to Russia after this postseason) and Kostitsyn is apparently a locker room cancer according to the Habs fans.

Yeah, cause "team rules" are why Radulov's being benched. I think Keith Jones had a lot to do with it! :lol:

Wysh's take.

How does this affect the Predators?...

...It should galvanize them. Down two games in this series, headed home with two players having "betrayed" team rules in at a critical time … if the Predators and Coach Barry Trotz don't rally around this frustration and perform better in Game 3, then pack up the tents.

They should both go back to Russia. If you make millions (almost for Radulov) then be professional and follow team rules. they should both be fined by the team too. Radulov is garbage and should never have been allowed to come back to the NHL the way he did. The league needs to address that, and the bulls*** that they most likely got into.

I thought Sergei was the problem child, not Andrei (or moreso anyway).

I still remember that night that the French-Canadian media were saying was going to be one of the darkest days in the NHL's history and it turned out to be next to nothing.

Poile knew what he was getting when he acquired these guys. So it's no surprise really. I applaud Poile and Trotz for 'doing the right thing' but is this more about sending a message to the rest of the team to wake the F up? I guess this way Poile and Trotz cover their asses. They win and the media makes them out ot be heroes. They lose and it's all the 2 selfish Russians fault. Either way it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

I was going to say the same thing. I heard about Ozzie doing that the night before a game, of course he wasn't set to be the starter.

If they are staying near the arena there is plenty of opportunity...

I'd guess it was more that they played with little effort in game 2 than anything else, and the fact that Nashville is down 2-0 the team doesn't have much to lose. Pretty good move by Trotz to galvanize the team and set an example for the younger players on Nashville.

I guess backchecking is a team rule? God knows Radulov's violated that rule hundreds of times. His utter disinterest in working hard to help his team is pathetic. He's the king of floaters.
