The list goes on.

Some don't learn.
Sorry man but this makes absolutely no sense. You're trying way too hard to find reasons against adding Radulov.

All you did was list players who didn't work out here.

Want me to list ones that did?

Messier
Graves
Beuekeboom
Jagr
Nylander
Straka
Gaborik
Richards

And now I could insert some snotty line like "some never learn" right?


Radulov for a 2nd round pick, even a 1st if we've already negotiated a deal for him to sign here is a STEAL.

He is not a better "hockey player" than Parise.

He IS a more creative offensive catalyst than Parise.

He will be paid less than Parise.

He fills more of a glaring need than Parise. That doesn't mean adding Parise would be redundant. It means, we would be fine with our lite version of Parise in Callahan. We do not have a player with Radulov's ability to create plays anywhere on the roster or in the system. Period.

In all likelihood, we could (finanicially) trade for Nash, AND add Radulov.

Nobody is suggesting we trade for Radulov and crown ourselves champions without exploring further her options. But deals like this (if the speculation by Brooks is accurate) don't present themselves all that often.

And finally,

Have some more faith in the guys we already have here.

No single player is going to come into this locker room and "destroy chemistry." The room is already far too strong. If anything, the current leadership core rubs off on Radulov and effects him. Not the other way around.
