He also said that he believes that Rad really wants to play in the NHL and he would love to have him on the team. It sounded like they simply couldn't agree of the length of a contract and did not part on bad terms. I assumed Poile had shut the door on any possible return, but maybe not. Could be he's waiting to see what July 1 brings before he makes a decision.
I agree. Things may not be exactly as they seem. We all thought he'd be back in Russia already. Apparently Peterson wants him back. This isn't the first I've heard of him making a comment on Radulov that wasn't negative. Maybe they still get something done before the season starts. Who knows? He (Radu) keeps things interesting around here that's for sure.
