He's not exactly Patrik Elias, I'll say that much.

Of course, people lumping him in with Aleksey Morozov are also wrong. Radulov's a first line player in the NHL. He's not a great one (if he hadn't jumped the pond, he wouldn't exactly have been displacing Marty St Louis, Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, Hossa, Sharp, Marleau, Skinner, Gaborik from a few years ago...maybe not even James Neal now or Semin a few years back, though both of those are arguable), but Radulov is legitimately good enough to fill the #1 wing role, even with the warts in his game.

Aleksey Morozov is a washout who was never good enough to stick. Radulov's definitely not that.
