Let's see ... Radulov runs off to Russia in 2008 with one year remaining on his Predators contract and signs a deal just days before an agreement is made between the NHL and KHL. He subsequently extends the KHL contract and we now know that their contract year runs through April 30th. No matter how we view it, the IIHF and KHL view that as a legitimate contract which requires his KHL team's permission for him to play elsewhere.

The NHL just this week got around to officially deciding if he would have to clear waivers or not if he returned so that hurdle is behind us. The interaction of contracts in multiple leagues with their inter-league agreements is still a problem if Radulov does ever plan on returning to the NHL.

Who thought this would be as easy as Ufa getting eliminated and Rads getting on a plane? The past four years show that nothing is simple when it comes to Radulov.
