A possible Radulov outcome: KHL Prez Medvedev pays Salavat to let Radu go. Radu comes to Nashville, bolts in the summer for Medvedev's SKA

I could see that.. AR would be free then to sign a new deal legally as his contract with Nashville would be completed and he could go back there play for a few years then be unrestricted here...

If that happened I would lose my s***

I'm very open to Rads coming back but if he wants to play in Russia, just stay there unless he's going to commit to us for a little while. He doesn't need to view the Preds/NHL as his side-project.

If true, I say keep him suspended. I wonder if we are going to see ANOTHER IIHL ruling?

Oddly enough, I don't care if Radulov comes back, fulfills his contract, and then goes back to Russia. It would be awesome to have him for the play offs.

I'd rather him not come if he's just going to leave again.

Only if we can get a pay-per-view of Weber, McG, and others pounding him into hotel mini-bar sized bottle of vodka. Then I would pay for that show, burn it to DVD and watch it OVER and OVER and OVER again.

I do find it hilarious how many people were ranting how Radulov leaving with a year left was the most egregious thing ever but would now be perfectly content if he came back and did the same thing to Ufa. If it was wrong when he did it to us, it would be just as wrong if he did it to them.
Youre right, he should just stay in Russia then.

I find it hilarious that this is even an issue to you.What do you want Nashville fans to say? UFA should keep him? Haha doubt that. I say this with confidence, EVERY Nashville fan wants him back.

That is so hysterical thats it's really not even funny

I really hope Poile does his homework here and doesn't cash in Rad's rights for a 2 month stint.

Calm down ppl. Too many of you are taking that scenario to literally just because a Russian sports writer said "possible outcome"

Let's be clear: the "possible scenario" is purely speculation. It's no different than if I were to tweet "One possible scenario for Radulov is the KHL could put him on loan to the Predators, and then release him on April 30th allowing Ufa to retain his rights."

Both are possible, but neither are based on much of anything

edit: actually I guess my scenario may not be possible, but you all get the idea

I don't think Poile can do anything.... He either accepts the risk of one game/ the rest of the season.......or he doesn't

with the olympics and his fame in russia..........why would Rad do anything else?

he really does get to have his cake and eat it too.....

burn his elc contract, and go play in russia for 2 years, play in the olympics.....and come back and be a ufa.

frankly, that scenario is consistent and logical......

If getting rads for only 2/3 months lands us a cup or at very least convinces Suter/Weber to lock up, I could care less what he does after the contract expires.

But why give Rads that satisfaction. This organization has been bent over by this guy plenty. The team we have now has been kicking ass in the win column. Sure, I'd love to add him (though it is at a risk of imploding a locker room), but not to be continuously used by the guy.

The sad thing is, I could see Rads burning his ELC and going back to Russia next year, playing out until he is UFA and coming back to the NHL after that. Granted, I think the NHL would suspend him if he leaves next year, but in all seriousness I don't trust him in any way possible.

I can't believe I let myself get my hopes up. ..

Frankly, that scenario is inconsistent and has no logic. Why???

If he bolts with been RFA with us, no Olympics for him. And KHL will circumvent the current agreement with NHL.

It is a WAR after that....

And those tweets was a conversation of two dudes just throwing out anything to keep it a conversation...
If Medvedev would like to keep him there. He would keep him with no such ******** needed. He is President of the KHL, he can do whatever he wants, he runs the show. If he would like Rada to come play for SKA he would just make sure such transfer happens. Simple as that.

You guys thinking too much...
Relax

I think when the CBA negotiations are done, the NHL will agree to let its players play in the Olympics. Either way, guys like Ovechkin have said they are playing in the Olympics no matter what the NHL says. I don't see Sochi 2014 being a hurdle here.

If Radulov is fulfill the last year of his contract with Nashville, and then becomes RFA, it is perfectly legal for him to go back to the KHL. The agreement only covers players under contract. RFA players are allowed to sign wherever.
