Radek fills the Mooseheads requirement for having at least two Czechs on the roster at any given time, which is more important than ever now that the Columbus Blue jackets are keeping Jakub Voracek and robbing us of all of the delicious draft picks that we could have gotten for him.
Furthermore, it is good because what our team needs is more old guys who will not be playing in the league next year, and even fewer draft picks for the years to come. As it stands now we only have two 16 year olds in the system...and teams who are rebuilding should always do so by filling up their roster with as many 19 year olds as they can get and throwing away draft pics.
Let's check Radek's statbits from last year when he played with the last place Drummondville Voltigeurs, shall we:
22 points and a +/- of -29...and he wins 25 % of his faceoffs. TOTALLY WORTH IT.
He had the second worse plus/minus amongst all of the players from last year's Voltigeurs team. That is just what our seemingly defensively irresponsible team, who has allowed more goals than any other team in the league, needs right now.* He is big, and heavy (read fat: 235lbs) and apparently slow - oh hooray.** WHAT!!! They are giving him 1st line duty. Is this just so that Knotek does not feel lonely?*** Wow Yeti/Mathieu...you got really lucky with this one.
