Salavat Yulaev signs Alexander Radulov to 3-yr extension

dchesnokov

Report: Alexander Radulov extended his contract with #KHL's Salavat Yulaef for 3 more years until 2014.

From twitter. He is very reliable when it comes to Russian hockey news.

Preds could use a 1st line scorer.

Preds should have traded his rights. He's never coming back.

Sucks real bad if true. Guess he wants to spend his prime years in the KHL.

It's time the Preds stop waiting for this guy, he just made a bad image for Russian hockey players to NHL fans with this crap. Time for the Predators to move on without him.

I understand the guy is uber-talented, but he's also turned his back on the NHL. He's not an NHL player and likely never will be. Some guys prefer the softer, puck-possession game of the KHL. Particularly if they have a desire to be Russian hockey Gods.

My only gripe with this kid was wasting so much of the Preds time and energy.

Peace Radulov! It was pretty obvious he never had the passion or drive for the NHL. One of the few to realize that and stay where they belong. Too bad, talented guy. Will just have to look forward to seeing him in international play now.

Major disappointment. I was looking forward to what he could bring to the NHL if he came back next year.

I don't like seeing significant talents spending their prime years in a 2nd tier league. He should be in the NHL.

I would fault him for not playing out the last year on his NHL contract. Aside from that though, who cares if he wants to play in the KHL instead? It's really his choice, maybe he just doesn't want to, doesn't mean he sucks or is too soft or whatever.

More like he wants to spend the rest of his career in his motherland.

Ok, let's say this is true. Will the NHL/Predators pursue a case with the Court of Arbitration in sport or will they just give up on him? In addition, if the NHL sacrificed Radulov and the Preds for an agreement with the KHL does the Preds get possible compensation?

In a pointless related comment, I saw someone wearing the jersey that Arnott was cut out of, at a Devils game last week.

Uh, if they were going to why wouldn't they have pursued it more aggressively when it happened? How does him signing an extension really affect their case much? Seems to me that the Preds/NHL wrote him off a while ago anyway.

Agreed. They're not waiting for him in any way. In fact they replaced him with a very similar player in Hornqvist and they have a solid core of forwards (Hornqvist, Erat, Wilson) that they don't even need him.

fat chance

NHL teams don't even pay much of a compensation/ development fee to the European teams that develop all these youngsters

They did pursue it in the initial action of Radulov signing with UFA. They protested with IIHL and they made a ruling but the timeline of the ruling was POST Radulov contract with KHL so it did not apply. (Ruling being that any player poached on either side would be out of international competition).

If the IIHL views a possible extension as a new contract then Radulov would be out of the WC and Olympics. (The Sochi Olympics). If either side is unhappy with THAT ruling I wonder if they can protest to the CAS (Court of Arbitration in sport) which is the high court in sports. If they don't have an agreement with them then the IIHL would be the final word.

The KHL could make a case that the extension is just that, an extension of Radulov's KHL contract. The NHL/Preds could counter that it's a new contract. Either way, it's an salvo which could re-ignite the war, unless the NHL threw the Preds under the bus and sacrificed Radulov for a new agreement.

(Wow, all that course work in international sports law finally pays off.)

EDIT: It's a matter of cost/benefit analysis. Is it worth the NHL's time and money to protest this to risk a KHL agreement?

No suprise

He was never gonna come back to NHL because he would be obligated to fulfill his final year of his deal with Preds

He makes more money in KHL

Hope he enjoys a life of mediocrity. NHL doesn't need spineless garbage like that anyways.

All the people saying he lacks the drive to play in the NHL... no he doesnt. He could easily put up 60-70 points, maybe more in the NHL but he obviously prefers it there. He might not have the typical NHLer drive, but he still has more than enough drive to be an awesome NHLer
