Filthy assist for Rads.
Radulov was a can’t miss signing. Kudos to Nill for not missing on the chip shot.
I’m extremely jealous of you guys signing Radulov. The Stars got one heck of a hockey player. He was our best forward in Montreal. Fans will love him in Dallas, he’s the complete package. He’s good on all three zone and his work ethic is contagious,
It’s really too bad that we lost him, take care of him.
Bonus: His golf game should improve too with early April head starts
He’s great. Unfortunately, outside of the top line, this team has nothing. I can’t imagine how awful this team would be if Radulov chose to stay in Montreal.
He should be able to maintain the pace for most of the season.
Last year is a poor comparable as he had just come back from the KHL where they play a lot less games than the NHL, so there definitely was an adjustment.
By way of comparison, the KHL only has 60 regular season games. The playoffs begin in February and end in April.
Radulov should be better equipped to maintain a high energy pace this season.
In reality, there is no such thing as a sure thing draft pick or UFA. Many had questions, i.e., did one year represent the true Rad, given his early history, etc. Ditto on Bishop. Was his decline last year a long term trend or a one off seasons?
People who fail to investigate come up with such nonsense. Last year he was going through a tough divorce. That affected him a lot on the ice too. And he still was looking better than most NHLers would.
This time around he looks way more focused.
Not taking personal life into account doesn't help either.
Dallas is going to get the most out of Radulov for the length of the contract probably with a lot of potential going forward still. People then will tell they are surprised or whatever.
By the end of the season all whiners will be invited to a great crow dinner.
Hand fan here. Quick question, as a Rads lover.
The shootout he had the other night when he fell and got back up, do you guys think it was on purpose to try and confuse the goalie? If it was, good on him. It worked out well aha.
I re-watched it several times to try and figure out the specifics of how he fell, and it really does look like he did it on purpose. There was no obvious loss of balance, and his skates didn't move in an odd way other than to pull back so he could drop to his knees. Ludwig ( the Dallas color guy) mentioned he's seen Radulov do that move several times in morning skates, which at first I thought was dry sarcasm, but now I'm pretty sure he was being serious.
Ya definitely intentional. Freakin awesome, guys a stud.
Lol you guys are too much. There is NO WAY anybody would practice falling over as a legit move.
54 games, 51 points
Remember there was a thread/poll on the main board in the summer: ''Who is better, Radu or Kadri?'' I can't find it though but it was there and it was pretty much 50/50 at the time. Well, some of us knew better than those Leafs fans.
Man...I can guarantee you the Stars fans who weren't happy with him earlier in this thread have definitely changed their mind. Has been our best forward this season easily. 100% all the time and he is just so much fun to watch and makes everyone around him better
Damn lazy Russian. He's lazying his way into 70+ points this season.
It takes time to carve a niche in a new environment. Radulov's been terrific.
Watching Radulov game after game has told me a lot about the Habs. How can a guy be this awesome at dishing out scoring chances and only have 50 points unless he found himself playing with a bunch of stone-handed plugs.
Habs fan here. Your assessment is correct, we have the worst forward group in the entire NHL which is why his point total was so low. Just to give you an idea how bad we are, his center was Philip Danault lolll.
Anyways, Radulov was easily our best forward last year and our GM let him walk. I'm happy that he's doing well for you guys and I hope he scores 5 on us tonight.
