Poile on 104.5 (Radulov)

Poile just mentioned on 104.5 the Zone that when Radulov's KHL contract is up next year (12-13) there is a decent chance he will come back to the NHL.

Of course, grain of salt.......but man that would be good to see.

He said better than 50/50 chance so I would suggest that at the moment it is looking good on the Radulov front.

We already knew this, but it's nice to hear Poile confirming it again.

Did he say anything else interesting?

Wait, so that means there's a good chance Rads could come back in 2013-2014? Seems like a pointless exercise to even bring this up with so much time between now and then...

No I think he meant Radulov could come back to the NHL for 2012/13. He only has 1 year left on his KHL deal.

I think you misheard. Iirc rads signed a two year extension that starts next year. So he could return for the 13-14 season. But i wouldnt count on it since the olys will be n russia that year

He signed a three year extension that was to begin this year, but according to Dmitri Chesnokov, Ufa's funding has been pulled, the team gutted, and his three year deal became one. According to Rad himself, and now reiterated by Poile, he has one year left on the 'new' deal, and Poile feels optimistic he'll be back for 2012-13

Could be very good news unless something happens and Ufa finds a way to replace some of its lost funding between now and then.

Too bad Poile wasn't all over that and convinced Rads to sign a big extension with the Preds when the KHL deal was about to become one year. I doubt it was a valid contract if they changed the terms unilaterally, so I assume Rads agreed to the new one year deal. Before he agreed to one year, but after the old one was wrecked, should have been the time to strike. I would think when a team is having financial trouble is when the NHL would have looked sweetest. Of course Poile may have been trying, and just not succeeded. Or, the old contract said something about being able to make it shorter if they wanted.

In mother Russia, contract signs you!

Sorry, had to do it. What a bizarre world Russian hockey is? Shapeshifting contracts and questions of making payroll sound more Slapshot than major hockey.

Poile sounded like it pained him to say that we need a top 6 forward. If Weber wasn't up for his contract and putting the heat on the get some offensive help I don't think would do anything but now if he doesn't mean Weber leaves if we don't show that he's trying to get a legit scorer. I still don't think he will what we have is what we'll see.

In the real world you can amend contracts as much as you want, as long as the contracting parties agree on the new terms. Just like they can agree to end the contract if they both agree. It's the CBA that doesn't allow that to happen in the NHL.

Certainly. (Is the KHL the 'real world'?) But at some point it may have been known that they were discussing a different deal with Rads and that it was one year. Maybe it was tightly under wraps. But I say too bad Poile wasn't right on top of it. Surely an NHL deal would have sounded a lot better to a guy at the time he was hearing the KHL wanted to renegotiate and was offering just one, or that they felt they couldn't pay his old deal in full whether or not he agreed to a new deal.

But we're not talking about the real world; we're talking about Russia.

In this same interview Poile also said we would likely see a third D pair of two kids new to the NHL, or something like that. IIrc, he also said something like "and I'm alright with that."

And he did say it was 50/50' "actually more like 60/40" that this russian guy would return for the '12/'13 season.

So a Laakso-Josi 3rd pairing, sounds ok to me too.

I think it's Josi - Laakso, with Lebda as the 7th at least until December. Let Ellis get up to speed in Milwaukee, it works (Radulov and Blum). Then if Ellis is ready, Lebda goes on waivers and Laakso becomes the 7th.

And if neither is right, Ryan buys

Just want to add, our defensive depth is sick. Blum will be a star, and Josi is supposedly just as good. Ellis can easily be another Franson at worst.
