I'm not saying I'm thrilled with his playoff output so far. I thought he'd put some in by now. But he's certainly no worse than most of our forwards, and I think a couple of Borque's goals have come because they've ignored Borque to focus on Radulov with the puck.
This is the sort of impact that cannot be ignored. Having Radulov creates another problem for the defense of the opponent. Now they have to worry about Radulov AND Erat AND the Kostitsyn brothers along with our depth. It stretches defenses thing, and creates opportunities that may not exist otherwise.

I'd like to see Radulov start pouring it, but until he stops trying I'm ok with the results we are seeing.
