The other thing is that, at this point in his career, he's just not ass effective on the power play as he is at even strength. Case in point, he's very good stickhandling on the rush, but when the play slows down (i.e. power play) he tends to lose control of the puck more. I think he could be quite good in front of the net, but unfortunately Bonk put up some good numbers at the beginning of the year and Trotz refuses to admit that he's just not getting it done now.
Disagree on the first part, and agree on the second part. In all honesty, Radulov goes to the net more often and more effectively than anyone on this team. He is also the most talented (or second behind Dumont) player on the team with the puck. For him not to be on the 1st pp unit is a travesty.
