I'm glad you heard the same interview so we know we're talking about the right quotes. For the most part I got what you did out of the interview. He mentioned 'maybe not wanting to play to make it worse with free agency looming'. Is that really wrong? These guys are hurt. The organization hasn't stepped up and offered a contract to these guys, and certainly wouldn't offer it to them if they hurt themselves long-term.
If this was game 7 of the Stanley Cup, I'm betting they would be playing. With this series being the way it is, and our team being the way it is, I don't have a problem with these guys looking after themselves at this point in time.
Yes I blame the players if that was the reason, but both these guys are pros and would not do that.If it is true, then I would not want either one here ever again.
