Unfortunately, punishing Radulov could very well have alienated his relationship with the organization. He may agree that he learned his lesson, but if not, I could see him signing with a different club in the off-season. He has control of his situation now, and if he feels this experience was upsetting for him, he may consider other options.
It's up to him now, which is a scary thought for those of you who want him back next year. We'll have to see how loyal he is to this club.
He's an RFA after this season. Next season, he has two options; The Preds or the KHL.
