Well, in the KHL's defense, he is the reigning MVP (3 years in a row, actually) and he won the Gagarin Cup with Ufa last year. So he's a pretty highly prized player in the KHL.
What I think that shows, however, is the disparity in the talent level and work ethic from the KHL to the NHL.
Couldn't agree with you more in terms of the disparity in talent. However, do you think the reason why the work ethic is so low in the KHL is predominantly the result of the the fact that the league is so flush with cash? Or is there really no difference in work ethic, and high profile guys like Radulov give that league a bad rep?
