See, you're better off being patient and develop your own players, surround them with GOOD veterans both on and off the ice, than rush and get other team's problems and that, not matter the asking price. A rotten apple in the basket is likely to rot the other apples.
Experience more than proved that, when done right, picking other team's "child problem", as you call it, actualy make them turn their career around.

Now, since Radulov's "problem" only amounts to going to play in the KHL and not tying in well the team he joined for less than 20 games, and missing curfew once, I say the reward if definitely worth the risk.

We don't have the skill at the wings in the pipeline ready to go with Plekanec. I'd be happy if we did, but we DON'T. We need a great winger to go with Plek, so you shop for what is available. That means Semin, Radulov and Parise.
