All that aside, I do hope they take another run at Korneev this offseason.
There was an article in La Presse a month ago in which they talked to the Habs' Russian scout, and he basically said that he didn't think Korneev was NHL material, and that he wasn't interested to play in NA anyways.
I'd take Radulov any day of the week and twice on sunday. The guy is still young , full of potential and talent and has shown he can perform in the NHL when he played with the Preds.
i believe radulov,left the preds on good terms, and said radulov can return at any point. radulov stated that he will head back to the preds after his khl contract ends this year. so unfortunatly radulov will be a pred next year.
I would also. I'm guessing Jagr's had enough of the KHL (had front row seat of Cherepanov's death last year and had to fight a meathead in a line brawl this year) and would welcome a return to the NHL.
