303 QUICK POLL: Radulov, Kostitsyn will not play tonight; good or bad decision?

section303QUICKPOLL

Nashville Predators Head Coach Barry Trotz confirmed that both Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn would not play in game four, thereby extending their team-imposed suspension for their antics last Saturday night by at least one more game.

The Preds won game three without their leading playoff scorer (Radulov) and without one of the leading playoff goal scorers (Kostitsyn) but is this the right for Trotz and the Predators? The Phoenix Coyotes lead the best-of-seven Western Conference Semifinal series, 2-1 and both games that the Predators lost were games in which Radulov and Kostitsyn were playing.

So is this the right move? Or has the punishment already fit the crime? In essence, are you worried that these two offensive weapons will not be at Nashville’s disposal in tonight’s critical tilt?

    Good. Keep the Grinders in. Sniping won’t work against Smith. We need “dirty goals”
