I'm happy to be wrong about him and he has become one of my favorite players, but I still can't help but laugh at the projections before the season started that he'd be a top 10 league forward in points and the best Russian after Ovie.

He needs to pickup his game. Galchenyuk has been taking most criticism, but Radulov deserves just as much for his sloppy play lately.

Radulov

he has faded in the last 1/3 of the season. he does not have near the goals he was suppose to bring and his overall play has deteriorated. He is not the player promised and is totally not worth the 8 year contract he is claimed 2 b looking for, his play has gotten repeatedly worse and his line has not held up their own.In fact all the great additions have not lived up to what was expected. Weber is not the elite dman he was sworn to be. he has hardly any goals 5vs5, once the east figured him out,he is not getting his shot off hardly at all.I think all the so called great trades and signings are all coming back to haunt us. As far as I am concerned, overall we lost on the Weber trade, Radulov signing and Shaw trade..these will weight heavily on us for years to come

How a one-year contract can "weight heavily on us for years to come"?

you want to hand out 6-7 million for a guy that has 15 goals, 4 of which came in one game? He is a cap killer. 30 yr old Euro here for a huge contract, after one average year. Must be taking notes from pleks.

Thread title evokes the historical Russian monarchy.

There was an Alexander III, apparently was a Russian Emperor from 1881 to 1894.

What game did he score 4 goals in? He looks terrible right now, if Julien had a brain he would know that he needs rest as Radulov is not used to the NHL schedule.

Radulov is used to playing 60 regular season games in Russia, where the regular season typically ends around mid-February.

Playoffs start in the third week of February and the playoffs wrap up around mid-April.

I agree that it shouldn't be a surprise if Radulov has some issues adapting to an NHL schedule on his first year back to the league.

Well, he USED to be good.

I'm sure he'll bounce back. Despite his play since the injury he's been a really good pickup overall.

I wouldn't play him for any other regular season game. Let him rest up and play the way he did in the beginning of the year in the playoffs.

Marinaro this morning reiterating Radulov's 8-year contract demand.

Whether the Habs sign him or not, we only need look at the baseline set by similarly aged UFAs last year -- I don't have a list handy but seems to me a lot of 30 year old plus players got 5-6 year deals and most if not all of them have not had a better season than Radulov this season.

I like Radulov but much north of 5 million a year, then you have to look elsewhere unless its on one year deals.

We just dont know if this is fatigue, aging, injury, etc related but since about the 50-55 game mark, he just isnt the same player. Committing long term to him is a huge risk at this point as there isnt an NHL track record

The max he can get is 7 years

Wondering how many more wins for Habs to clinch a playoff spot. Maybe shut him down after that.

I understand the 8th year is at the club's discretion. He's technically only entitled to ask for 7, however, it's being reported his camp wants that 8th year -- all part of an opening negotiating stance of course.
