I was pretty turned off by his attitude today against Canada. After he scored, he brushed off teammates to continue spinning his stick, then stopped when he was past them all and did a "look at me" pose.

No thanks from Toronto.

for some strange reason i dont see him ever coming back to nashville to play for less than 1m. he will be earning a LOT of money in russia. you might as well trade him soon before he gets that next large contract in the KHL.

Fans ripped John Tavares to pieces because he didn't celebrate his teammates. I guess you don't want him either.

of course he is not a winner, he is pretty much the Satan reincarnation
well except... he, Forsberg and Dumont was the best Predators forwards in playoffs unlike captain clutch Jason Arnott.

Why blame Barry Trotz for alinating or Predators management for playing hard-boll with young player when you can just balme this ugly greedy russian.

I say let him rot in the KHL! I wish someone would have given him a Dale Hunter after goal into the boards when he was spinning his stick around like a monkey today! Any player who signs a contract and bails on it, to go play in Russia should not be welcome back into the NHL ever!

I guess players like Fedorov, Malkin, Zherdev and others are the anti-Christ.

I would say Radulov is on the trade block in Nashville. He made the players on the team angry and while things could be smoothed over a trade would not be out of the question. Now his value is the million dollar question. We dont know if its low or high. My guess is his value is around a mid first rounder (10-20). It is proven he can put up 60 points in the NHL and may want to come back but it is still a risk.

Poile hangs up laughing. These threads are pointless until we know whether Rads wants to come back to the NHL and whether he wants to stay in Nashville or not. Pred's are better off holding his rights until he commits to coming back to NA.

There is no way the Preds will move him, but Radulov and Hemsky would be intriguing

Gilbert and Nilsson for Radulov's rights and Hamhuis

I dont see his value that high since it would be risky. But that is a nice offer for him IMO.

how can a team and its fans think that a player that refused to play for them will command more than a mid first considering he has a career high of 58 points and is more than willing to collect the big bucks in his homeland than play in nashville???

How do you know he still doesn't want to play for Nashville? All that talk is pure dumb speculation at this point. He has never once came out and said he didn't like the team or the city.

The road back to the NHL for Radulov comes through Nashville period. Radulov is not in a posistion of strength whatsoever. The Preds would be stupid to trade Radulov until he commits to coming back to the NHL. The level of difference between the returns they would get for both situations would be astronomical. Preds have all the leverage here and have no reason to trade Rads away for peanuts.

I can see a heat of the moment celebration, but there's nothing spontaneous about taking your stick blade and spinning it at half speed around the ice.

Little quick to assuming I was attacking Europeans don't you think? I don't care for Riberos attitude either.

1. He never refused to play with us. The guy is a young immature man who probaly was homesick and saw an oppurtunity to make NHL type money while living at home.

2. When Radulov left he was still a young player who was improving every year. He has tons of talent. It's not like is a guy who had been in the league along time and his ceiling is a 25 goal 55 point player.

leaving the club while under contract against NHL, and IIHF rules is pretty much refusing to play for the club.

I actually agree with you. He did that alot in Major Junior and people brushed it off as him just being a young boy, surely he will grow up and mature. Alot of talk has been made for years about how Rads is just an immature guy and if anything that celebraton today just showed me how nothing has changed.

I think the assumption here is that Radulov agrees to play for the team he is traded to before any deal is finalized. In that case, it is in the Nashville's best interest to trade him as soon as possible to maximize value.

That still doesn't answer whether or not he just wanted to go home or he just wanted to get out of Nashville. It really doesn't matter though because the bottom line is Nashville holds all the leverage in this situation. IF Rads wants to come back to the NHL then that is great. If he tries to say he won't commit until we trade him then we can hold onto him for as long as we want.

and than nashville tries to call his bluff and he simply never comes back and nashville gets nothing for his rights.

And that benefits the Preds how? Nashville really doesn't have leverage, because if Radulov doesn't get his way, he can just continue to make tons of money playing in the KHL. It's the Preds that want to change the status quo, because they get nothing from him playing overseas.
