If Radulov was willing to finish the ELC, he would be playing top-line minutes in Nashville. I can't imagine they would trade him if they thought he would actually come back--and certainly wouldn't accept "just Hartnell" as the return.

And, from our side, I don't think you could trade any asset of value for less than an iron-clad guarantee that he would come back.

It's a bad situation--from the NHL's perspective at least--and it is really hard to find a path forward. Actually, I'm surprised that this hasn't happened more with talented (but not superstar) Russian players.
