To get some perspective, Lars Eller, the player you "wouldn't trade straight-up for Radulov", a player I like a great deal, had a grand total of 17 points last year...as a 21-year-old.

I think Radulov has the potential to be a top 10 scorer. 80 points a season does not seem out of reach. Add to that, Radulov is a consistent "plus" player, often extravagantly so.

6'1"...205 pounds. Nah, what would we do with a player like that anyway?
It's still a player who ran home when things didn't go his way and there is no guarantee he would report here. with risk comes a reduced price. If Nashville wants to hold out for big return they can sit on him for another 10 years and get nothing.
