I think his rights are almost worthless right now due to the complete uncertainty about his intentions about returning to the KHL. Why would anyone risk giving up any kind of asset only to have Rads go back to the KHL and not come back to the NHL until he's a UFA?

And it's not like he really made a big splash with his return...he was good, but he was not the dominant game-changer he was thought to be. Plus there was the whole drunken playoff debacle. He still has a lot to prove.

No way he get's a huge contract from any NHL team at this point until he shows he is worth it. He used to be one of my favorite Preds. Now, not so much.

Dmitry Chesnokov ‏ @dchesnokov

Vladislav Tretiak, head of the Russian Hockey Federation, announced that Radulov will not play at the Worlds; will have a knee surgery.

Radulov, much like before he came back, is worth more to the Predators than in trade. One dumb decision doesn't change that, especially when he was our best forward throughout most of the playoffs.

I would guess he gets a 2-3 year deal worth 5-6 per. I know I said there were no prove it contracts, but I think it is one, and one that is fair.

Anyone see Chesnokov's tweet about Medvedev's (KHL President's) quote? This is the quote from Medvedev:

Quote:
"The story with Radulov breaking team rules is (the Predators') payback to him for not signing (in Nashville) long term."

Hahaha, WTF?! No wonder Radulov is a ******, he's spent the past 4 years playing for a league headed up by a dude like THAT.

I prefer this tweet...

Robby Stanley ‏ @hockeynightNSH

Alex Radulov says he would love to stay in Nashville. No decision has been made yet.

Tri-fecta signing.

The fact that it "doesn't only involve the Preds" sounds like its something with the arena or something like that.

Unless it's Radulov and it involves the KHL not getting him back. More likely a sponsor or some other off ice event. We'll see this weekend.

I can't imagine them holding, and calling it a HUGE announcement that Radulov is going home..

Right, but would the Preds even hold an announcement/press conference if Radulov was leaving?

No but the predatorial is a reputable source. Theyre pretty in the know, and the Preds would not hold an announcement to announce Rads going back to Russia

I seriously doubt it, not worth the time. Guess we'll find out something soon on whatever it is.

no it's not. it is just a blog.

it has nice, well-written articles. But as a source for breaking news regarding the preds, I would have serious doubts.

Is it at all meaningful that just about all of the Euro Predators are currently playing in the Worlds and Rads is not? I count 23 on the Russian roster, so I think there's still a couple of spots open.
