This is exactly right.

Of course, a return of Radulov could be on the condition that the team agrees to scrap his final ELC year, and negotiates a new contract with him. If that is the case it will not matter.

i think the bone the Preds could offer, especially in light of their increased payroll, would be to allow Rads to burn that last ELC by playing here this season, and then re-sign him over the summer to a bigger deal.

I would rather see that happen, btn. Then, we would have Radulov for the stretch run and the play offs. Rads was a beast in the short time we saw him play playoff hockey. I think Poile is going to have to shred the final ELC year either way. If he can get SOME value out of it, great! It helps the team even faster, too. Otherwise, bring him over before October, scrap the ELC, and sign him to a new deal.

Is there anything in the CBA that would allow the final year to be thrown out? I don't think so, NHL contracts cannot be reworked.

Supposedly, the Capitals did it with Semin when he made a similar move. I don't remember if that was pre or post lockout, but there's some precedent at least.

We are still talking about the summer right? He wouldn't be able to help THIS season.

I think that is bad news for SK or Hornqvist. Rads would step in and replace them next year

I still hope, pray, beg, whatever, that Poile adds dynamic talent this trade deadline in a put up or shut up way.

Wilson Carter Rads
Erat Fisher Hornqvist/SK
Smith Legwand Halischuk
Borque spaling tootoo

that team is freaking stacked.

Maybe ... possibly ... we can suspend him and keep him on his ELC according to one section of the CBA, another states that any player coming from Europe after the start of the season must clear waivers unless they were on loan, which Radulov is not. Everything he does causes headaches.

hopefully, when that time comes, the NHL works with us on what we want to do since there are multiple contradicting rules on the issue. will be interesting what they make him/us do.

I just can't imagine the PR hit, and dent to whatever credibility the NHL has if they make Radulov come through waivers. There's just no way that he comes back to the NHL with any other team.

would of course be much better for us to have him play a whole season at 975K

if that happens he could then be bumped up the following season when Fisher's contract is gone and erats money drops dramatically.

I will buy you a very large bottle of medicinal distillate if the NHL makes him go through waivers.... I know its theoretically possible but it would just be.... wrong... to punish us for what he did...

Although I agree with you, there's just no way around him going through waivers as it stands right now. Headaches indeed.

At the end of the NHL season he doesn't have to clear because his contract expires correct?

No it would be beacsue the season is over. The question to be answered is whether reds would be treated like a player who was not under an nhl contract, signed in europe then tried to come back(waivers) or whether, since he violated his contract by leaving, he would be treated as a holdout player who has decided to honor his contract(no waivers). To me the answer is clear and I suspect for the nhl the answer will be the same.

I'm pretty sure he is currently and will remain "suspended".

He just attacked one of his KHL coaches, so he could be back hear sooner than we all think.

Seems like an accident, especially the way he seemingly apologizes to him afterwards.

Agreed. He didn't attack anyone. He got mad and slammed his stick, not realizing his coach was behind him.

Here it is embedded:



It does look like he is just meaning to hit the boards with his stick out of frustration, and then puts his hand up as if to apologize. The coach goes back to what he was doing rather than freaking out. If he truly wanted to attack the man why would he do it on the bench?

No biggie. Looked like an accident with the way he raised his hand to apologize afterwards.

I do too. He turned his head in that direction before he swung.

What's more plausible, he glanced to the right and didn't notice the coach or he hit his own coach with a stick on purpose?

Regardless, what you're looking at is someone that has a tough time controlling his emotions. While a coach likes a little emotion from the team, uncontrollable emotion can be a very dangerous thing and very counter-productive.
