The Nashville Predators forward Alexander Radulov has decided to return to Russia to continue his career in the Continental Hockey League (KHL). His agent, Yuri Nikolaev, made the announcement in the Russian daily Izvestiya on Monday. Last week, the formation of CSKA Moscow had acquired the rights of the talented forward. CSKA, including former NHL player Sergei Fedorov is the general manager, would have made a significant financial compensation for Ufa Salavat Yulaev for Radulov. The most persistent rumors suggest that Radulov could become the highest paid hockey player in the world, an annual income of over $ 12 million. Radulov Predators Joined in March, but general manager David Poile said a few days ago that he was not interested in keeping its services for the next campaign. Russian 25 years has amassed seven points in nine games with the Predators last season. In the playoffs, he added six points in eight games.
And since he's a player returning from NHL, they can exempt his cap hit, correct?
Very clever maneuvering by Radulov. He burns his ELC while simultaneously qualifying himself for the huge KHL payday. Taking that pushes him past NHL RFA status.
Basically what it adds up to is that the NHL and KHL need a transfer agreement, or I think we'll start to see more players leveraging the two against each other like this.
