The OP should be comparing Kharlamov and Makarov to Fedorov and Ovechkin he wanted to make a point, not to schlubs like Radulov and Morozov
The OP chose those players, it's his choice. They are not even close to being all-time greats of course.

However, it was stated that Radulov would never even threaten the top 20 in scoring, and that seems quite debatable. If Radulov is assumed to play his entire prime in the NHL, and a wager was offered that he wouldn't ever finish top 20 in scoring, I would take that without second thought.
