I am willing to bet you a large bottle of your preferred beverage that rads will be allowed to come back without waivers.
the reason is the intent of the rule is to keep teams from circumventing the cap by "hiding' a player in europe for part of the season and then bringing them back for the playoffs or a late season push.
Preds wont be punished when they didnt do anything wrong.
