He's still UFA property. He will see UFA officials.

I was actually thinking of BBQ sauce made of maple syrup and letting the meat soak in wines from the region.

Wha??
Where is superior top Smyrna? As a resident of said town, I feel compelled to at least attempt rebuttal!

But back OT, I would think any sane GM would want to have a clean bill of health on a guy who has not been under your medical supervision for that long. Between that and the official agreement from NHL/NHLPA on not needing waivers, this looks more possible the more I hear. #radwatch

I thought this too but it wouldn't surprise me if he skipped the Oilers game at least. The team will be out west with very little practice time once they return and I assume Rads wouldn't theoretically join the team on their trip, even just to meet with them. I assume he would go straight to Nashville and wait for the team while using those days to re-adjust to life here. More than that, he may have one practice at the most with the team before Tuesday's game, and on top of having to find chemistry with the "new" team, he will have to adjust to the size of the rink in North America again. If he comes back it may take a few days before he or the team are comfortable putting him in a game.

Well, I'm on that 2/20 plan, half season tickets for this year and next and upgraded to full for next year in hopes of seeing him and the AK/SK for an entire season. I work out of state (TX) so it makes it impossible to go to all of the games.

His agent said that his knee could be a factor in his decision. I would imagine he is wanting to get a doctor's opinion to see if he can play on it without doing more damage, or if he needs to rest. He obviously has the ability to play through it, but avoiding further injury is still a concern, especially for a guy who could be returning to finish the cheap year on his contract and will probably be looking to earn a nice chunk of money on his next one.

I think the MRI itself is a good sign for those who want him to return to Nashville. The results are what will determine what he does, though.

Wouldn't he still have to pass a physical? Maybe making sure there would be no surprises if it gets that far.

I like how KHL is trying to play their game here, when it is already obvious that he is coming over.

That is why he is getting his knee checked out, NHL and NHLPA met on subject, Medvedev kinda sucked it up already that he is leaving.
Salavat Ylaev almost made it clear he is not coming back.

Should we ask Polie about him talking to his NA agent?
100% he did talk to him today.

Really can't believe my eyes on this one. I can't believe he would be coming back and risk his relationship with Russia, but hell I am all for it.

Seth, if he comes back, I owe you a beer sir.

I'm still not happy about how he bailed on us for so long and just walked on a contract, but like most us, would love him for playoffs!

I'd be surprised if they're 100% as it seems pretty obvious they aren't, especially if he's been playing with some sort of injury. Does anyone know how long he's been playing with the knee issue?

An idea for a lineup:

AK-Legwand-Hornqvist

? -Spaling-Halischuk

Leftovers: Wilson, Smith, Bourque, Tootoo, McG, Yip
Offer to put Rads with Gaustad if you want him to stay in Russia!
You can't/can't/CAN"T waste his talent there- Gaustad is a beefed up Smithson.

I think Horny has to fall out of the top 6. Either Rads goes there or (my preference) unite the brothers with Leggy and slide Rads in with Erat/Fisher. Either Erat or SK need to feed Rads IMO. I could see Trotz using either Spaling or Smith to center a "third" line that has Rads....

i guess this makes sense... gaustad is probably too big for rads to concuss...

Radulov takes Hornqvist's place in the Top 6. Hornqvist is honestly better suited as a 3rd liner anyway, despite being our leading goal scorer.

If we're determined to not break up the top line:

SK-Fisher-Erat
AK-Legwand-Radulov
Wilson-Spaling-Hornqvist
Tootoo-Gaustad-Halischuk

And really ,who cares what the "top line" is anyway? If you have two solid ones just make it lines 1a and 1b.

I think all bets are off on keeping any of the lines together ... it is Barry Trotz after all. He will shuffle ...

Personally I like the idea of 10/12/47 and 46/11/74 but I'm no coach.
