So if he has 1 year left on his elc and becomes a ufa @ 27 on july 5 2013 does that mean after one year in nashville he is a RFA or UFA?
Just not clear on this situation.
Also what are his #'s in the KHL i hear alot about him but never been overly impressed with in international play.
The UFA age cutoff is July 1st, so he'll miss being a UFA by a few days. Earliest he can become UFA is July 1st 2014.
He won back to back Golden Stick Awards (Regular Season MVP) the past 2 seasons and will likely be winning his 3rd in a row this season. He currently leads all players in points by a healthy margin, 59 in 43 GP. Next best has 52 in 47 GP.
Last season, his team won the Gagarin Cup (KHL Stanley Cup)
People have been making this excuse for Radulov...but its a silly one.
If you bump into someone accidently while say walking past them in a mall, you make more of an apology than this.
The coach cleary says something that gets to Radulov, who is obviously already upset about the goings on on the ice...
If Radulov was trying to smash the glass, and hit his coach in the face, there would be a HUGE apology...its clear he meant what he did- and also regretted it right after.
The fact that it is downplayed is telling...you hit someone that hard by accident, and just give a little wave?
Talk about a "star" player showing just how spoiled he is, and exactly why he left the NHL in the first place. He's not coming back anytime soon.
Which is a shame, since the Predators are such a class organization, and deserve better.
You got it all wrong. I HIGHLY doubt he did that on purpose, ill explain why. he hits him with the stick when he isnt even FACING the coach. Hes clearly frustrated and definitely trys to hit the glass but he hits the coach and barely apologizes by waving his hand. WHY? because your right he is so spoiled he wont get punished/yelled at for ACCIDENTLY hitting his coach or getting mad because they (and radulov) know he can leave to go to the NHL at any time.
HF freaking out...reminds me of the Ovechkin freaking out on Fatty McGoo boudrea (sp?)
