Not the main thing. Main thing is Radulov is stronger on the puck and in the corners and more physical. And he has an above average game in front of the net as well, screening/deflections/rebounds. Oh, and he can finish. If Johansson could finish Ovechkin's passes both of them would be considered gods here. Not that Semin can't but Semin isn't a particularly good 3rd guy for that line.

So he can be lethal with Ovechkin on the rush, effective when there's a scramble and we need someone in front of the net, and carry the play at least somewhat if it descends into a board battle. If he recovers from his torn meniscus well and plays better than he has this year he could make a killer line with the right linemates.
