If Radulov returns and scores say ... 35 goals the fans will most likely embrace him only to go through a contract haggle next offseason or as others have mentioned a sign and trade

I would look at it this way, he is a premier first line talent and whether he stays or goes Nashville will get some kind of return for trading him/extending his contract.

I think its a good problem to have for you guys.

Wasn't it Arnott that disliked Radulov because of the concussion ?
I think most reasonable fans would welcome Radulov back. He did a cruddy thing, but I for one chalk it up to bad advice and youthful mistakes. From Pekka Rinne's quotes, it sounds like there's no ill will remaining in the locker room, either.
