Radulov time

I can't watch preds games but dude have insane PP:ESP points ratio, only 6 PP points. Why Radulov had so little PP time? Coach don't like him? If he scored in normal for forwards pace in PP he would be top-10 in points in league.

We are too busy giving superstars like Vernon Fiddler powerplay time....

Your guess is as good as mine. Our powerplay blows, but we are pretty much uncreative in our powerplay game plan. Additionally, Trotz doesn't like to put certain players on the PP. It has taken Legwand until this year to get any modicum of PP time. Judging by Trotz's track record, Radulov still has 4 to 5 years to go before he starts seeing meaningful PP time.

Radulov and Dumont basically have much more ESP points than Savard, Getzlaf etc. In "normal" team these guys can be top-15 forwards in friggin NHL. Have preds ever had ppg forward in last 10 years under Trozky?

I think there are two things really. First of all, Radulov has been on the 2nd power play unit all season. He's getting power play time, it's just that our power play sucks. The other thing is that, at this point in his career, he's just not ass effective on the power play as he is at even strength. Case in point, he's very good stickhandling on the rush, but when the play slows down (i.e. power play) he tends to lose control of the puck more. I think he could be quite good in front of the net, but unfortunately Bonk put up some good numbers at the beginning of the year and Trotz refuses to admit that he's just not getting it done now.

Disagree on the first part, and agree on the second part. In all honesty, Radulov goes to the net more often and more effectively than anyone on this team. He is also the most talented (or second behind Dumont) player on the team with the puck. For him not to be on the 1st pp unit is a travesty.

Absolutely agree with this. Dumont-Arnott-Radulov have such good chemistry at even strength so you'd think putting them on the same powerplay unit would make good things happen....right?

Just a thought here but maybe Legwand is on the first unit because he is the only one that can consistently carry the puck into the zone.
