Senators respond to Kaigorodov

There's an interesting war of words going on between the Ottawa Senators and disgruntled prospect Alexei Kaigorodov, who returned to Russia after the NHL club tried to demote him to the minors:
Alexei Kaigorodov has now razed whatever remnants were left of the bridges he burned when he refused to report to the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League.

In an article that appeared in a Moscow newspaper, Sport Express, two weeks ago, he thoroughly carved up general manager John Muckler, head coach Bryan Murray, and Senators assistant coaches Greg Carvel and John Paddock.

Among his complaints: There was no communication with the coaching staff. Muckler didn't give him a chance. The coaches trust the players with the higher salaries. Muckler deceived him about the possibility of being sent to the minors.
The Senators hold Kaigorodov's NHL rights for the next four years, but he won't be seen playing in North America barring a trade — which at this point seems unlikely.

PS. I've been knocked out of action with some sort of mystery ailment the past few days, and as work has begun to pile up, I won't reach the conclusion of 'the best players you've never heard of' series until probably after the weekend. My apologies.
