I just don't think Nashville accepts the offer for a number of reasons.

1. Wolski is RFA this year which means he is line for arbitration/negotiations. Nashville is well known for playing at or near the salary basement. Why do they want to pick up wolski when they can have Radulov back ?

2. Nashville appears to have a need on the backline not up front. They need an affordable 4/5 kind of guy to clear the net and keep things simple. The team is already very deep in 50 point forwards. So in this regard a Michael Sauer probably holds more interest than say a Wolski.

3. Barry Trotz has been coach there since forever so anyone the rangers offer have to fit his system. Nashville does not need pluggers they are already drowning in those kinds of guys. I could see Del Zotto holding interest despite the fact that they already have Suter and Weber. But honestly I would prefer to keep MDZ than have Radulov despite his upside. Believe me I know about Rad's game as he is on 4 of my sim/roto hockey teams as I wait for him to return to the NHL
