How does Radulov's return to Russia impact Zherdev?

In case you guys haven't seen, apparently Alex Radulov signed with Salavat of the KHL/RSL.

Zherdev already threatened Columbus with a return to Russia, and if I recall, Radulov and him are good friends.

I still think playing in NYC will appease Zherdev, just as I suspect Nashville wasn't exactly what Radulov had in mind when he came to the NHL, but this does leave me a little worried.

Thoughts?

If we can get him under contract before next summer, this won't impact him at all with the new agreement.

Also, the Radulov thing is not official..

Hopefully it's not a bad sign for you guys. Z said in several interviews with the CBJ that Radulov was his best hockey friend outside of Russia. As Sting stated though I think/hope that NYC will be a more Cosmopolitan city, and perhaps more to the liking of Niki.

Maybe Zherdev will call him up and say: "Hey Alex, come to New York instead."

Geeze, with all of this nonsense going on, I would avoid European players altogether. Who needs these headaches?

Nothing to worried about. This whole NHL/KHL "friendly" agreement probably was sharp reaction on Radulov thing. From Rads interview its clear he signed with KHL team before agreement.

There's an interview with him in Sport-Express which makes it sound like pretty much a sure thing to me. The highlights:

Quote:
- When and from whom have you received the invitation to the Ufa club?

- I was invited to "Salavat" already in my second year. My agent was constantly in communication with the general manager of the Ufa club, Oleg Gross, and I knew perfectly that the club was interested in me. Ufa has offered me excellent terms, and I have decided to sign the contract.

- Have you already informed the management of "Nashville" about the new contract?

- For the time being, nobody knows about it, because it all happened not many hours ago.

- Are you not afraid that, considering your valid contract with "Nashville", the managment of the overseas club will insist on your disqualification?

- I am not afraid. As there is no agreement between our leagues, no problems whatsoever should arise.

Apparently the deal was signed yesterday.

All due respect to those cities, but there is a big difference between being in very small hockey markets like Columbus and Nashville and being in one of the largest hockey markets, and cities in general in North America; New York City.

If Zherdev is a big city kind of guy, there is no way he won't love NY.

Well, unless they completely invented an entire interview with Radulov, then it seems pretty clear cut to me.

He clearly states in the interview that he has signed the contract with Salavt and has no intention of playing anywhere else for the next three years.

good call. My bad.

I'm not too worried. Most of the bigger names in the NHL are there for the competition.

In a few years it may change, but even if it does, the NHL will still be the best league in the world.

Radulov is a ******* ****ing piece of ****. **** that **********, I hope he tears both his ACLs and can never walk again without a limp.

If Zherdev wants to go back to Russia when he's no longer under contract, fine. But **** him if he skips out on a contract

While I"m at it, **** Filatov for getting this **** started. Stupid mother****er should have gotten his **** straight before now instead of causing all this drama. Thanks a lot, ********.

Even if the NHL did poorly compensate other countries in years past, at least they had the decency to ban their teams from poaching players who were under contract when there was no transfer agreement in place.

Wait I don't understand, how can Radulov who is under contract to the Preds sign with any other team in any league? I am so confused with this whole russian thing to be honest.

Wow, the KHL is stealing some serious talent away from the NHL.

Who? A flash in the pan goalie, a geriatric primadonna, and RADULOV? They can take them, in fact we'll even throw in Malik, Poti, Bertuzzi, Berard, and Chelios.

main difference is there are actually russian neighborhoods. he'll like ny...if i was from russia, i would either want to play in nyc, la, or chicago. all big cities with a lot of immigrant communities

Everyone's different...

of course, if Russia offers a comparable contract to play there, and a kid wants to remaing close to home, this can become a serious issue down the line. If Zherdev lights it up and KHL comes a knocking, the trade for Tyutin may not look so bad (unless Toots goes to Russia too, but that's getting ahead of ourselves). It may not be enough to start saying that teams should stay away from young Russians, but it's just the beginning and who knows how it will play out. Perhaps cities, such as Nashville, Columbus, Carolina, and others where some foreigners feel less at home will be hurt the most. Again, it's early in the game, but this seems like it could be the beginning of something real.
