Dear hockey fans – the season is officially launched. And with this new season, my question is whether the Montreal Canadian’s have made a wise decision in signing Alexander Radulov for a six millions $$$ for a one year contract. Will there be a good ROI (return on investment)?
From 2004 to 2006 Rudulov played for the Quebec Rempart in Quebec’ Major Junior league. With a total of 227 points in just 127 games, he impressed many national hockey leagues scouts. It was in 2006 that he started his career with NHL’s Nashville Predators. In his first three seasons, with this team, he had accumulated 95 points in 145 games.
His attitude however, was left to be desired. Several clashes with his coach took place during these three years (2006-2008) and left in poor terms with the Predators to go play with the KHL (the National hockey league in Russia).
His return to the NHL with the Habs may be seen as a long shot. Only the future will tell. If you were a betting “man”, would you bet on Radulov?
