With stupidity like that running the team, no wonder he wanted out of there.
Is Radulov the best player in the world? No. Is he one of the top forwards playing hockey right now, absolutely. Guys like Semin and Datsyuk and Kovalev are more skilled then Radulov but what people don't really know about him is his amazing hockey vision, hockey IQ and an unquenchable fire to score, win and be the hero.
It's funny how people here accuse him of being a coward or not playing hard when he is known to be a no fear, play your ass off kind of player in the KHL.
All you guys who discount the accomplishments of guys like Radulov and Morozov in the KHL are just ignorant. There is great hockey out side of the NHL that requires a different skill set and it's nobody's fault but your own that you guys are ignorant of it.
For example Kiril Koltsov is one of the best offensive defensemen in the world and what percentage of HFboards even knows who he is?
Canuck fans bring him up every so often and dream of what could of been..... (I still create him in EA games)
