Help Me out Hockeybuzz Nation!
Seriously…a friend just came up and asked me that question. My first instinct is to say “no, of course not!” But when you hear the talking heads (Brett Hull, Barry Melrose) talk about us I begin to question it myself.
I don’t think of Hartnell as a dirty player…but ask a Sharks fan and you’ll get an earful.
Ask if they think Radulov is dirty and then your other ear is full too! (but here is a guy that has played his entire career including his time as a junior player and NEVER got suspended!)
I have been proud of the way our team has not backed down this year. Last year in the playoffs we were pushed around and taken advantage of. No one was digging for the pucks, no one was hitting and we lost in five.
So help me out…are the Nashville Predators a dirty team?
(note...I am really looking for some objective opinions on this...Pred and Shark fans have a strong opinion on this but how about some of you other fans?)
