    Preds bench 2 guys for Game 3

    Wow...wonder what happened?

    Nashville Predators forwards Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsynwill not play Game 3 of their Western Conference Semifinals series against the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday as a result of violating team rules.

    "The Nashville Predators have a few simple rules centered around doing the right things," Predators president and general manager David Poile said in a statement. "We have always operated with a team-first mentality and philosophy. Violating team rules is not fair to our team and their teammates."

    I believe a "drinking binge at a local strip club" story will soon make its way around. Surpising the other Kostitsyn was not involved.

    Amazing. Wonder how they feel about bringing Radulov back into the fold. Would be ironic if this sunk them deeper in a hole. 2-0 down in the series it's not like they had anything to celebrate.

    It must have been a fairly aggregious violation of team rules for them to bench their leading playoff scorer.

    I think it could be entirely from on-ice conduct too.  Both of those guys loafed like crazy during the last game and refused to play defense at all.  Maybe they broke some team rules too, but they could easily have been benched on the basis of their actual play.

    Just read online that they were out drinking until 4am in Scottsdale.  No word on what bar or "club" they were at.

    Drive through Scottsdale and it'll be pretty clear what type of club it was. Man, that strip from the airport to Old Town is like entering Pleasure Island from Pinocchio.

    Didn't the Kostitsyn boys have "drug" issues in Montreal a few years back before one of them got traded?

    Wouldn't surprise me the Russian Mafia was invloved. In Scottsdale.

    Cool

    I believe it was excessive partying in mafia-owned bars in the Montreal club scene. Sound familiar? Actually, hard not to do if you are living in Montreal and have lots of extra cash.

    By the way, did you shave off the beard Byron?

    Nope. They never have beards to shave in the first place.

    After watching the films of Radulov loafing up and down the ice, refusing to play defense of any kind and being on the ice for goals while doing it, I suspect he was going to get scratched no matter what bar he went to.  Sounds like an excuse.

    kelly hrudey brings up a good point, they have a guy like tootoo who's busted his hump all year and is watching from the pressbox because radulov gets a free pass to come back and have a spot and then this.  Doesnt send a very good message to the team.

    I give Poile a lot of credit. Gutsy call but it shows his commitment to this team at a crucial time of the season. Nice to see Phoenix moving in a positive direction but I'll be cheering Nashville on at least for this series. Can't help but admire this guy.

    zamboni - Nick Kypreos on THE FAN 590 this afternoon said the Preds could use this incident to "galvanize" themselves against Phoenix.  He said in his experience people outside of the team often expect something like this at this crucial time to sink team morale but it can have the opposite effect.  A kind of a we'll-show-you type of thing.
