Why have we not heard from him? People are analyzing Radulov interview....at least he spoke. Even SK made a comment.

I'd like to know exactly what happened. Until then, just have to focus on tonight.

We could have easily won game one. Take out a couple of major brainfarts in game 2, and we win that one too.

It's time for people to step up, and it's time to cut the crap. Hoping for the best tonight-- the season is on the line.

Radulov is an RFA, AK is a UFA. Funny thing is Trotz might have told him to pound sand.

They both practiced. They both took the morning skate. What is done is done. I think the team has put it behind them and is moving on.

[Trotz] Also says they didn't know about Radulov and Kostitsyn until after Game 2

His nationality doesn't have much to do with this.

His work ethic does.

Believe you me, if that were Tootoo and Legwand going out on the town they'd probably be getting suspended for even longer.

Absolut awesomness from OTF!!



IMO, both of these guys are gone next year. They showed their commitment to the team by their actions.

This team played well before these guys got here and they will again.

Tootoo has essentially been suspended for the past 10 games or so...

I don't think Legwand would get any less of a pass than Radulov. I'd venture he'd get more of a pass.

Again this will be easier to assess if the real story ever comes out.

Coyotes fan coming by to say your organization did the right thing. Sucks the fans are the ones that lose out in a situation like this. Good luck tonight and here's to a sobriety filled series going forward. Except for the fans of course.

If I'm not mistaken, the situations were different. Radulov and AK knew there was a curfew, had a game the next night, and chose to break the rules. Then they played like crap the next game to boot (though this doesn't really matter since Trotz has said they wouldn't have played in that game had he known).

Legwand messed up, and bad, but his mistake wasn't a slight to the team like this is.

He likes to sulk and avoids talking he had to in Montreal he couldn't get away from it there.

Also I think there's only a curfew for away games. Legwand got pulled over on his way back home from a Brad Paisley concert. The Preds hadn't played that night and weren't playing the next day. What he did was stupid, but it didn't directly affect the team.

I can't imagine Leggy taking a field sobriety test though...he looks kinda weird all the time, with his mouth hanging open. I can just picture him sober on the side of the road, still looking like he's drunk...haha.

I keep hearing that Rad and Ak's actions speak of their lack of commitment, they don't care, etc... but my question is what is more important, commitment on the ice or outside of the ice?

AK and Rad have been the most productive forwards for the preds in the playoffs, lead the team in goals/points ... Rad was the best forward in the Red wing series while AK had a strong series too... Both were praised after most games by Trotz... Now against Phoenix, AK has been the only productive forward 5 on 5, and thats playing with Spaling, not a very offensive player to say the least... Aside from last game where Radulov played very poorly, if you would judge the commitment of a player, on the ice where it really matters, based on performance during the entire playoffs, they would be in the top 3 or 4 forwards.... Without Rad and AK, I dont think the preds make it to round 2..

On the opposite end of that... we have Nashville's first line who has been ATROCIOUS thus far in the playoffs... getting scored on and not producing anything 5 on 5.... Most disappointing of them as been Fisher in my opinion, a player who had such a great year... now missing in action, does nothing offensively and he's -3 ...

So based on performance ON the ice, which is what matters, shouldnt Erat, Fisher and Sk get the most criticism for their lack of commitment and determination and desire to win and perform ? Of course not, they show so much commitment OFF the ice!

Now dont get me wrong, Rad and Ak deserve criticism... but not that much more than the players who have laid a big ol' egg thus far in the playoffs.

I'll agree with this.

I'm not really interested in "integrity" when it comes to curfew and drinking.

Are you kidding me? Teams have rules, Rads and AK broke them. All the rest of the guys were following the rules. The inmates do not rule the asylum in Nashville, never have, never will. If they are allowed to get away with this, what's next, getting away with not playing the system on the ice? Sorry, I totally disagree with your viewpoint on this. It's a team game on AND off the ice. It does a disservice to the guys following the rules. If the entire team was out past curfew I'd be fine with all Milwaukee guys coming in and playing. These are professionals that signed contracts with rules and stipulations.

The part that stinks is that these two thought they were above the team rules and put themselves first. Let them sit and wonder what it would be like to play at home in game 3.

The thing is, they already penalized us in game 2 for doing what they did and it showed in their performance and now we lose them for game 3 as well. The fans and the other hard working players are suffering because of their selfishness. Let them deal with that but I am sick and tired of athletes only being in it for themselves. It's a team game and everyone needs to come together to make it work.

Play by the team's rules or don't play in the team's sweater. It's a really simple concept.

I'd rather lose with a bunch of good guys doing things the right way, than win with players who don't seem to care and can't follow simple team rules at this point of the season.

As a Blue Jackets fan, I can say that you will eventually get sick of that
