It is time to just let go of Radulov. Fact is, if he sucked so bad, fans wouldn't be ******** over him playing over there. This what could have been attitude is getting old.

Not every Russian is the same. There are just as many that will bust their ass to make in this league as there any other nationality. Cold War is over folks.
The KHL is a better league probably so overall but it is not on this pedestal you attempt to place it on to downgrade an observation on Barkov.
On vacation to stay in shape huh.. Not sure if you have ever been an athlete at a high level but to get there you are very competitive and do not skate around on vacation during a game.

I agree the cold war is over and yes plenty of Russians are great players
and fun to watch. However the ones who are truly like that do not pop off at the mouth with what they demand and say they have nothing to prove.
