the thing is-- we're not going to have gaborik to start the season. if we have rad there in his place then we're going to have plenty of time to figure out how much we like or dislike him. if he isn't adjusting to our system by the return of marian, then we have trade fodder come the deadline which is when radulov will be at his highest value as teams try to lock in some last minute moves.
torts can risk playing him to start the season while gaborik is out. if he doesn't improve he either gets demoted, worked in a trade, or he sits with gabby a few months looking for chemistry. nothing can go wrong. even with any potential loss that he brings next season, he's an easy move at deadline assuming that he is not a khl acquisition.
