  • Did Alexander Radulov even scored a forehand goal last year?
  • Might as well be a backhand compilation…
  • Two years in though, the Radulov contract looks good.
  • In each of the first two years, he posted 72 points, and last year, for the first time in his career, he averaged more than a point a game.
  • There are still three more years on the deal, so Father Time hasn’t had his final say, but as a 32-year-old last year, Radulov had his best, most complete season in the NHL.
  • Any regression is from a pretty high ceiling.
  • The great thing about Radulov is that the deeper you dig into his numbers, the better he looks… specially on the backhand…
  • Radulov led last year’s team by a sizable margin, and a full half-win above Tyler Seguin.
  • Looking forward to the 2019-20 season, Radulov is one of just a handful of Dallas forwards who consistently distribute the puck into high-danger areas.
  • As a result, he helps to make his linemates better.
  • What may not be fully appreciated is how much the Stars have come to depend on the highly effective version of Radulov, and the potential disaster hiding around the corner if he hits the aging wall.
