The Curious Case of Mister Radulov




He is an enigma always has been and perhaps always will be. Alexander Radulov is arguably one of the top five players in the world not in the NHL. He is a 27year old game breaker with amazing hands and natural talent a star that no one can harness...except for Patrick Roy .

Roy coached Radulov to a Memorial cup championship and got the best out of him, more than any coach ever has.. Roy is a "Russian whisperer" he apparently has a way with moody russian prima donnas, just ask buffalo. Mikhail Grigorenko looked amazing playing under Roy but hasn't been the same since. Its the same case for Radulov.

I started to take notice of Radulov when he played wing for Peter Forsberg when Forsberg was dealt from philly to thr predators. He complimented Forsberg well and they were a strong tandem in their short lived playoff appearance. Forsberg had nothing but good things to say about Radulov. He said he told him "When I pass you the puck just shoot, don't give it back to me."

Sure Radulov is your typical super talented but inconsistent russian but...I have faith in Roy. I think he could make it work. Duchene Radulov and O'Reilly sounds interesting. MacKinnon Landeskog and maybe Stastny sound pretty good as a top two lines. I know about the partying with Radulov but I think this is possibly the only "fit" he has in the NHL with Roy and a friend in Varlamov so he doesn't pout and feel homesick. I feel the pros outweigh the cons. Radulov has two years left on his KHL deal but there is always a way out. Nashville still hold his rights but I doubt it would take much to get him.
