I don't know the rule but I thought the Pred's indicated when he was cut at camp that he wasn't eligible for the AHL this year?
Because he wasn't signed.
I don't think they'll move him to the AHL this year, in an case. I think he will and probably should finish the year out in the Q. Likely, they've been working on the deal for a while, but without much of a rush. This just ensures that if he's ready to make the team next year...it'll go without a hitch.
he gets that kind of money even if he is staying in the Q??
technical question sorry
He'll get the signing bonus, but not the salary. His contract won't start until next year. And he'll only get that kind of money (600K) if he makes the NHL. There's an AHL salary figure that they aren't reporting.
Alexander Radulov will finish the season with the Quebec Remparts. He won't make the Predators roster next season unless there are some big changes on wing. (Like trading Scott Walker.) He'll play next season in AHL Milwaukee. Nashville likes to season their prospects. But I can't wait to see him in a Preds jersey. IMO, he's the goal-scorer the team has been lacking.
If the Ramparts should fall early, raddy WILL be in Milwaukee with at least ONE call up to Nashville. IMO HE WILL make it on the NHL roster next year. Someone is going to be traded/ not signed and we'll pick up a first line center. Not sure who just yet. It could be Walker UNLESS he has a BIG last half! I expect ERAT has an excellent chance of remaing. He plays HARD all of the time and can score. He has a lot of up side. He could be traded with another player for that special center we need so badly. Stevenson and/or Totoo are the ones that ought to be worried. Instigators/fighters are a dime a dozen!
