If the coach allowed those two clowns to play game 4, it might have affected team morale in the locker room.

Radulov is one of the laziest forwards that I've ever seen in terms of back checking. He won't play the 2 way game.

Radulov, Kostitsyn out for Preds in Game 4 - sportsnet.ca

Here's a video showing Radulov taking a long skate just before the Phoenix scores a goal. No hustle at all. Where is the backcheck from no. 47?
Lazy. NBC analyst Keith Jones rips the Russian up.

Not all russians are like that. Datsyuk comes to mind.

Hope they have a good replacement if AV's axed.

I say bye bye Preds. Too much distraction.

For every Pavel Datsyuk, there's 100 moody but talented primadonna Russians that barely touch their own bluelines.

He must be choked. Was his dream to play for Canada.

It's probably his only chance to since he won't be selected next year....since he'll be in the cup finals

Stanley Cup Stats:
2007 Anaheim Ducks knock out Canucks.... Then Ducks Win the Cup
2010 Chicago Blackhawks knock out Canucks.... Then Blackhawks Win the Cup
2011 Boston Bruins knock out Canucks..... Then Bruins Win the Cup
2012 Los Angeles Kings knock out Canucks..... ..........?


The key to winning the cup, is to knock out the Canucks?


We are fucked.

in all those years of getting knocked out by the champions, i really thought vancouver had the best line up to win it all..... sloppy play by luongo vs blackhawks but now i really see them better than they should have been. Vancouver losing to the flyers who had shittier goaltending?

edit: no olympics and stanley cup in the same year

And the racial profiling continues.

Have you played with your fellow Canadians? Or hockey at all? Don't you think Canadians are just as susceptible to that conviction? both in the recreational level all the way to professional level? Or does that not jive well with how Canadians view their image of their own hockey players?



FACT: Canadians are among the most douchiest hockey players I've ever played around the world; just because they feel they have a certain sense of entitlement towards the sport. And its fans like you that reinforce that.

I've played with many many forwards who strictly play offense and don't backcheck. But guess what, we're not in the NHL. I think that's his point.

And you think Canadians in the NHL don't coast themselves? For as much Canadian greats we've had in the league... how much in relation are those Canadians who make up the fringe, barely hanging onto a roster spot, or are quick to lose theirs?


Nahh, it's probably just a Russian thing or their culture isn't it.

Ovechkin delivered a potentially suspension-worthy check on Dan Girardi.
Many onlookers believed that Ovechkin left his feet while making the hit. Reports are mixed on Girardi's head being the principal point of contact, though. Ovechkin received a two-minute minor penalty for his hit.

Forget the hit for a second. What a pass by Ovie from his skate to his teammate.

that wasnt questionable, look how much bigger Ovi is at the time of contact, he did pretty much all he could to avoid his head

When you hit someone like that your feet will leave the ground its just how you react. But it looks like he purposely tried to launch off his right leg into the guy.. Def not suspension worthy IMO. Guy got back up hardly looked dazed by the hit..

Also looked like Girardi was trying to make a hit/bracing himself for it. No reason that would be suspendable.
