    I dont know anything about radulov either so any info would be great but looking at his numbers this year. He was on the same team as Ovechkin and scored more goals, got more assists and got more penalty minutes.

    I think they were in different division...Ovechkin was in a higher league.

    Wrong. He played in a lower league than Ovechkin. Ovechkin played in the Super Leauge, Radulov did not.

    Radulov is an interesting prospect, more of a boom/bust type guy.

    He has unreal offensive abilities. Hes got a snipers instinct and loves to win. He can dangle, the McKeens scout says he has hands of gold. McKeens also mentions that he is a very underrated passer. Kinda like Zherdev last year. THN says that he looks more like a Finn out there then a Russian on some nights. They say that he will run people over just to get the puck. THN also mentions that hes very strong on his skates and has a very quick release. He was very impressive at most of the U18 tourney's this year.

    Some of the knacks against him, is that he can be inconsistant at times, and that he isnt overly reliable in the defensive end - though not a liability. At times he can also be a bit of a hothead, which leads to some stupid penalties.

    I think he reminds me a bit of a Kovalev/Mogilny type player. Someone who you depend on for offense. I see him being maybe 2-3 years away from the NHL. He needs to bulk up a bit and become a little more aware of his defensive zone.

    is he big, physical? is he a game breaker? someone who likes to have the puck and make a play to win the game? does he have quick legs? skate fast?

    I love the comparision with Kovalev. It's very accurate.

    Only thing, he's not as strong as Kovy.
     
  10. Sounds like a player the Wild could use...

    Kovalev will probably sign elsewhere and Radulov is most likely long gone when MTL picks.

    Hes not overly big - 6'1, 178 lbs. I would definitely say he has game breaking capabilities. Yes he loves to have the puck and loves to win, you would have figured that out if you read my post above properly. Hes pretty quick, not blazing speed, but fast.

    Kovalev will remain in Montreal..I have a feeling...why would he leave?
    Radulov dropped for "hot head" reasons like you said and he won't drop to 18th but if he's avail at 14..Habs might make a move.
