    Good thing this was dead wrong. Not picking on you, many thought 8 was fading. Some just faster than others.

    This is the playoffs for Kuzy to be or not to be. Ov cant carry the Caps without the puck and Kuzy and Backstrom need to be the players they can be. They cant win without that. If they can do that, then Eller becomes the hole card.

    The real problem with the Oshie deal was that the money should have gone to Radulov, which would have given us a Kessel caliber threat costing 6 mil instead of a complimentary top 6 guy

    radulov last year: 18 goals in 76 games
    radulov this year: 27 goals in 82 games

    oshie 2 years ago: 26 goals in 80 games
    oshie last year: 33 goals in 68 games
    oshie this year: 18 goals in 74 games

    there is zero evidence to support this weird claim

    There's more to offense than goals. I guess Oshie > Backstrom since he puts up more goals lol.

    Radulov's playmaking is on par with Kuz and his work in the corners/stripping the puck is absolutely elite.

    Your right, and Oshie brings a ton to the table when he is on his game. Having a head injury early in the season kinda derailed that.

    He's a good complimentary player but hardly what we need to go all the way when we have all of 3 guys capable of driving the offense as things stand

    Radulov is the epitome of a hired gun who nobody wants long. Huge pass.

    Have to agree that Radulov is better than Oshie. At times he can be dominant like Malkin to a lesser degree. He is an excellent playmaker. Maybe not on par with Kuzy but not far behind.

    Talent isn’t the question IMO.

    Radulov is an excellent player and his attitude problems are way behind him. He was Dallas' most consistent winger this season, I thought he outplayed Benn overall. Stars are happy to have him locked up long term. I'd rather have Radulov than Oshie for sure.

    In exit interviews last year nearly every capitals play told MacLellan that he had to resign Oshie. But, yea. Radulov

    Yeah, just like Beagle the year before that. Clearly it paid off

    Radulov has attitude problems still. Also he doesn't like Ovechkin off the ice.

    Next! :P

    That is a brutal comparison. Beagle still does what Be able does. He has never had the impact on the team that Is his did in his first two years. The impact that he has made this season when healthy. I would much rather have Oshie than Radulov

    There's a reason the Pens rattled off two cups when they replaced James Neal with Phil Kessel
