Jason Arnott former teammate Suter; discusses incident Alexander Radulov

JASON ARNOTT RIPS FORMER TEAMMATE RYAN SUTER; DISCUSSES INCIDENT WITH ALEXANDER RADULOV

MAY 10, 2022  (19H01)      TIM TUCKER
Jason Arnott played close to 1250 regular season games in the NHL for a total of six different teams. He saw a lot of teammates come and go over the year, and in a new interview with the Cam & Strick Podcast, Arnott discussed two of them, with a particular focus on one it appears he didn't care for at all.

"The attitudes of [Ryan Suter] was night and day to [Shea Weber]," said Arnott, discussing the four seasons he played with the Nashville Predators. "All he would do was complain about how come he's not on the powerplay, how come he doesn't play enough, I can't believe this guy is making this much money. Webs was...he wanted to learn, super respectful, played hard. So, you know, two different dynamics of mentality of players."

Arnott added that according to what he was told, Suter continued his complaining ways after signing his massive 13-year, $98 million contract with the Minnesota Wild in 2012.

"I heard he was a huge distraction in that dressing room," said Arnott, referring to Suter's time with the Wild. "Knowing Billy Guerin (Minnesota's GM), he's not putting up with that."

"And now look at them," said Arnott, still on the topic of the Wild. "He's built a phenomenal team without all that money and distraction."

Guerin bought out the remaining four years of Suter's contract in July of 2021. About two weeks later, Suter signed with the Dallas Stars for four years at $14.8 million.

This isn't the first time there have been indications that Suter was difficult to work with. There were rumblings of him in the past being "uncoachable", while it was reported that he hung up on Guerin with the general manager called him to tell him he was being bought out.

Suter wasn't the only former teammate that Arnott had an issue with while playing with the Predators. He also recalled an incident with the team when he pulled aside a young Alexander Radulov, who is now Suter's teammate in Dallas.

"We'd be surrounded by (head coach Barry Trotz) doing a play on the board at practice and all you'd hear was 'ting, ting' and I looked down at the other end and (Radulov) was shooting pucks," Arnott said.

"So I pulled him aside one day and I go 'you do that again and I'm gonna f--king tear your head off. Don't ever disrespect the team like that.'"
