I would think that from NHL and NHLPA legal point of view under current CBA his contract with any other club but Nashville Predators is not recognized. So technically for NHL he is not playing.
Thereafter he is not re-entry waiver eligible and can return to his Club at anytime if club lift the suspention.

Sorry if I am wrong but thats how I see it.
If Radulov comes back following this NHL season, the end of his suspension and extension of his EL status is simple .... 12-13 as his final ELC season, RFA the year following. If we try to bring him back during the season, it gets tricky with 13.23 since he isn't Loaned to the KHL. 9.1d(iii) explains how we've kept him under the final year of his ELC contract since July 2008 ... how it would interact with 13.23 if he attempts a mid-season comeback is a matter of doubt.
