No but they still lost to Chicago though. I rather they win games w/ him in though. He's got alot of skill and is a playmaker. But it's going to take team effort and them all geling as a team/working together to win games. Otherwise, they will still lose games even w/ him in or even w/ his mad skills. Still have to have the whole team playing well to come out w/ wins. Otherwise we just have a great scoring reel from him but still come out w/ a loss. If we can get all or at least most of our Preds players playing well, then w/ the Rads addition, this team will be a scary team. I think they already are but still need to work on their consistency in playing well every game. Seems lately we will win a game or two and then lose a game. We haven't been on a winning streak for a while, except for mid season.

It is actually not thaaat much shorter: for a player like Radulov it is 54 reg games + 3*4=12 games of the EuroHockey Tour. So it is 66

Wow, great to see him playing NHL just like he did in KHL. He's absolutely TOP 5 forward in the world. I can just laugh to those North American NHL experts who compare Mikael Granlund to Radulov when talkind about the best players in Europe.

Mikael Granlund is not TOP 20 forward in Europe. Why those "experts" compare european players if they don't know anything about KHL, SM-liiga or Elitserien?

In 3 years he has ((8+11)+(3+15)+(0+6))=43 points in 43 games. Those are elite stats.

It isn't a stereotype to say that the facilities are better in the NHL cities than in the KHL cities. Just a couple of weeks ago Radulov himself was complaining about an hour-long stoppage in play during the play offs because of a flooding issue. Now, that is not to say this issue is a regular occurrence, or even an expected one, nor is it to say that the best facilities in the KHL are not as good as facilities in the NHL. Still, it is hardly a stereotype to say the league with more money has better facilities. That's like calling it a stereotype to say a rich person has a nicer car than an upper-middle class person.

The quality of competition is obviously lower in the KHL. That is not even up for dispute, so I will not argue my case.
Regarding one case in UFA at the arena - this is the force major. If Salavat won this game - Radulov wouldn't even mention this case. Next day he apologized for his words.

Travel has to be worse, regardless of safety aspects. Let's not forget that we have airplane crashed in the USA, too. Distance traveled has to be taken into account. The closest team to Ufa within the Bobrov division is over 600 miles away. Two teams are over 1,000 miles away. In Nashville, the furthest divisional opponent is 537 miles away. I'm not sure how claiming that traveling shorter distances is a perk can be seen as a stereotype, but ok.
facilities that Khl players use during their season are top level and supposed to be not even worse than in USA and Canada.
Do not make yourself as you know everything about Russia - the majority of the Hfboards know nothing about it.
The air crash is the biggest tragedy but it could happen anyway anyday anywhere.

Facilities? Name me five that would be on the same level with the same infrastructure and customer service. They suppose to be, but they not. When guy getting taking off the ice on a sandcarrier like stretcher shows a lot.

Yes, air tragedy can happen anyway, but the tendency is that Russia is the leader in commercial aircraft accidents.

Cherepanov's death is another example, while in the same case a few years ago the player of Detroit Wings was saved.

I didn't.

As I said, I am basing the comments about facilities off of Radulov's own displeasure that was reported after the flooding incident in this year's play offs. Sure, it's one of those things that happened, but isn't normal. I can't think of a similar incident in the NHL.

As far as the travel is concerned, I made it clear that the crash can happen anywhere. I was talking more about the impact of more distance traveled. That is why another poster and I got into a discussion about whether or not a shorter schedule is enough to offset the distance.

If you are going to accuse me of being a know-it-all please read my posts first.

Ok, had to make a mass clean of this thread. If the poster can prove his claim, I will undelete the posts. If not, it didn't exist.

If Radulov was upset over a single instance like that, keep him away from Nassau Coliseum.
