If I had any technological know-how at all, I'd clip the meme I saw on Twitter last night into here...a picture of Radulov that says "Nah I don't have to clear waivers. You mad bro?"





Pretty sure the Preds fans on Twitter don't mind inciting other fan bases.

It sounds like he was asked, from a leadership standpoint, how Rads coming back would effect the locker room and how they (the "leaders") would need to handle the situation. Then followed up with him saying Rads is a good guy and a good player and would be a helpful addition.

It seems to me it's okay to read into his comments if they make him seem like a villain but if he's saying the right things "talk is cheap".

Given we're expecting the (hopefully) good news tomorrow, I probably would have just stiff-armed reporters for the time being if I were Suter. Don't think it's a big deal regardless.

I dont think rads coming back should be a problem at all.. all along suter and weber have "wanted to win".. well this drastically improves our team come playoff time so they should be more than happy

My problem comes from the assumption that he's 100% gone but Weber is going to be our superman and won't **** us over when there's no guarantee that either is true.

And Suter and Weber have wanted him back. He'll help us win which is what they want. His response was clearly answering a question about dealing with the locker room if he does. These players are professionals but you can't think that there's not going to be some hard feelings if you're Hali or Smith or Wilson and you're sitting because Rads decided to come back and it is something that they'll have to deal with the right way bc there can definitely be issues if they don't.

That said. I really hope he comes back and that the chemistry isn't bothered too much.

How is Radus addition to the team any different from AKs signing. Guys like Wilson, Hals, Bourque, and Smith were knocked down one peg with Andrei's arrival. Same with Radulov. If they want to play, they have to prove they are the best option for the team. I've said it before, I see this as a bonus deadline trade/addition.

There is still going to be animosity whether it is vocalized or not. Guys like Wilson,Smith and Halischuck have been big contributors this year. The way I see it 2 of Wilson,Smith,Bourque,Halischuck are going to be scratched every game assuming everyone is healthy. Can't forgot about Yip, he's played solid since being picked up and it's hard to imagine him getting in the lineup now. There will be some unhappy campers but hopefully they handle it in stride.

How do you think Matt Hassleback feels right now? At least they don't have it that bad.

Do you think these guys felt the same when AK was acquired? I his return affects these guys exactly the same.

Guys, I got this. This old magic 8 ball I found in my basement says "very likely" every time I ask if Rads is coming back to the NHL. I've asked the question 5 times and I get the same answer!


I also asked it if I'd find a one night stand this weekend, to which it replied "Outlook not so good"

.....this thing must be broken.

Congrats Preds fans on getting a great player back. You took one on the chin a few years back and it is only right that he comes back to you. I always admired how your team always keeps fighting. Good luck in the playoffs and I honestly hope you able to sign your 2 big guns on the back end. I lot of us up here in Manitoba have a soft spot for the Preds because of TOOTOO. I remember him in Junior...loved his game ever since. Your my my pick for the Cup (after the Jets of course).

Well...he's not exactly officially back yet...and I'm not going to hold my breath until he gets off the plane in Nashville.

JUST COME BACK TO NASHVILLE, RADULOV!!!!!

ahhh, I feel better now...

It's after 3:30AM and there is no news.....I feel like we are all like crackheads looking for news about Radulov. Constantly refreshing pages, I need some news, where's the news, anyone got any new news, won't calm down until we know something....


As far as other teams/players/fans being upset....SCREW. YOU. If you didn't feel bad for us when Rads left, don't be upset now that he may be coming back. You're really just upset that your team didn't get a shot at claiming him on waivers.

Remember when fans of other teams thought we were moving to Canada for many reasons......one of which was Radulov leaving?? Now it all (hopefully) comes full circle.

This city sure has changed everybody's minds around completely since then. Nashville went from a a struggling, non-hockey market to one of the best in the NHL. You've even gained fans from Hamilton, I bet. Congratulations.
