Someone's personality and temperament off the ice usually affects his play on the ice as well though.

From a skills standpoint, I can see the comparison of Tarasenko to Radulov but Tarasenko seems to beat him by a country mile in terms of personality, attitude, work ethic, etc. Maybe Tarasenko will turn into a diva if/when he becomes a star but everything I've seen is that he's a modest person and that's one of his main strengths as a player so that's why I don't really like ignoring that aspect of a player and why I don't think he compares overly favorably to Radulov or Semin.
