MARTINEK TWEETS
CurtisP11 Radek, Who was your favourite player and team when growing up? Did you always want to play in the NHL growing up?

Growing up in Europe I didn't know many NHL players. I looked up to Fetisov (Russian D) and Paul Coffey later on.
I remember having a picture of the Capitals. I liked the name! I just wanted to play hockey. My NHL goal came much later.


katieescee Radek, what was your favorite season that you played with the islanders?

My first season was my favorite (06-07). We made the playoffs at the last possible moment and I got to be part of it.



DOhockey11 Martinek, what has been your most memorable moment as a New York Islander?

In my first season when I got to see Trottier's number hung up in the Coliseum. That was something.


matcat1116 Radek, how's the knee feel? Think you're ready to show full potential at camp this year?

My knee is at 100%. Yes, I'm completely ready.


DanKarell15 What kind of work are you doing to get back on the ice.

Now I'm doing regular training. I don't have any limits. Rehab started 2 days after surgery with the bike, etc.


chipper39 Martinek; How did it feel to win Gold in the World Championships with the Czech national team in 2001?

Wow. 2001 seems like such a long time ago! It felt great. It's always nice to win.


AmandaxOsborn Hi, Radek! What do you like to do during the off season?

johnzanussi @AmandaxOsborn @kevin27nyi
I like to work out. Especially road biking with a group of racers when I go home to visit.


Maude_21 What's your biggest goal for the upcoming season?

My goal this year is to stay healthy and do my best.



NHLArenaNYIsles What is your favorite type of food to eat before games?

Pasta with marinara sauce. Sometimes chicken or salmon.



TCogley Radek, how do you think the chemistry will be in the D this year with the new additions like eaton, wisniewski, jurcina etc..

It'll be good. We're going to be pretty good on defense. I met our new guys and I'm looking forward to the season..


TheGKB who do you think you have the most chemistry with for your defensive pairing?

I think I might find that I have the best chemistry with Streit and Hillen but that's a tough question. We'll have to see.
