I'd only draft him late in a deep league just in case he doesn't like up to his potential (like Zherdev so far) and because 70+ point players are somewhat easy to find even in deep leagues.
I wouldn't say the Preds are or were in "firesale" mode, and a big reason Kariya was allowed to walk was because the team feels that Radulov is ready for an increased role(well, and he wanted an absurd 6 million a year).

Radulov was the best player on the ice for either team for the first couple of games of the playoffs...absolutely dominant...and I expect a very big year for him.
