I'll take that bet
IMO, we'd be lucky to get a bottom six forward for him. But he's not coming back anyway, so it doesn't matter.
The only thing anyone can "make" Radulov do is ban him from IIHF events. The IIHF is not doing this, so we lost. Game over. KHL - 1, NHL - 0. Unless, of course, the IIHF changes their minds, but I don't see this happening.
At this point, no one really knows what an arbitrator can and can not do. But I think most of us have the wrong idea. My logic is, why would Medvedev be so willing to settle this with a 3rd party? Why is the NHL unhappy with how this is turning out? Because Medvedev knows he will win. There's something else to this story that we don't know.
