What Will The Predators Do After Tonight’s Game?

from Damien Cox of The Spin at the Toronto Star,

Suspending Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn for Game 3 was a painful decision for Nashville GM David Poile and head coach Barry Trotz.

But the next one will be even harder.

Let’s say the Preds get their act together at home on Wednesday and get their first victory in this series over the Phoenix Coyotes.

Then what? Put the talented truants back in for Game 4? Leave them out and risk being pushed right to the brink without them?

And what if Phoenix wins Game 3? Would Borat I and II then return to try and jumpstart an improbable come-from-behind effort?

To me, you put them back in (at least Radulov, never been sold on either of the K brothers). While he has been pretty terrible at various points, his skillset is still unique to the rest of the roster and he gives them a better chance of winning if he’s in and has his head on straight.

They stand pat.  Until they lose and need a change I would not put these 2 jokers in.  It’s not fair to the guys that bust it and take things seriously.
