Fair enough--I did miss the "+."

I guess what I'm suggesting is, if Nashville believes Radulov will come back over, they would want far more than the Flyers would likely be willing to give up for him (+Schenn? a 1st? I'm not sure); they would accept much less in the interim, but that move makes no sense for the Flyers.

The way that this team is currently constructed, I don't really think they could give up a plus asset on the chance Radulov would come back--at which point he's only under control for a few years anyway, right? He's 25, isn't he? So one year @ ELC + 1 year RFA (unless there is some provision in the CBA that overrides the normal 27 years old / 7 years of service rule).
