If you look up the word "quitter" in the dictionary, you know what you'll find?
The definition of the word, "quitter," obviously.
But what you SHOULD find is a big picture of Sergei Kostitsyn of the Nashville Predators, who quit on this play harder than anyone has ever quit at anything before.
Kostitsyn couldn't handle the pass, couldn't get his feet moving to chase down Edmonton's Sam Gagner, and then couldn't be bothered to stay on the ice while his team gave up the shorthanded goal that was all his fault.
And the most spectacular thing about that SHG is that Victory Bartley got stuck with a minus because SK74 [— Jim Diamond (@diamondhockey) ] was able to get off the ice.March 18, 2013
This "effort" from Kostitsyn comes after recently being a healthy scratch too, so...message NOT received, I guess.
