They have a good locker room and a bunch of young kids, is Radulov the type of player we want in here? I think we are missing that top 6 veteran winger who can score some clutch goals to put us over the top.
He does scream Zherdev--Jones ripped him into shreds over his giveaways and back checking or lack of. That doesn't mean he can't improve or be pushed to improve in those areas but his on ice game as of right now definitely lacks many of the qualities that the current Rangers have tried to instill in their team. Guys like Avery, Wolski and Christensen could not live up to those standards and I have doubts that Radulov will either. So if he can't or won't make that kind of commitment are we going to make an exception in his case just because he can add a little more goal scoring punch--and the next question would be at what cost--in assets going Nashville's way and contract to play here.

Doubtful that this is a good idea.
