Alex Radulov wants to play for Nashville Predators, but KHL team won’t yet terminate contract
Alex Radulov wants to play for Nashville Predators, but KHL team won
Didn't he choose Russia over the Preds before? The guy can't seem to make up his mind which way to go.
How could he join the team this late in the season? I was under the impression that if a RFA didn't sign by November they were out the whole season. Did he actually leave Nashville while he still had a contract? I know Nashville retains his rights, but I thought they just couldn't agree on a new contract when he was a RFA. I'm confused.

Yuri Nikolayev, the agent Radulov, told me right now: "Yes, he's leaving." Expect to see Radu in Thurs game vs Pens. #Preds

He loses the portion of his KHL salary that was to have been paid by April 30. But the Ufa club retains the rights to the player through the 2012-13 season.”
"It would be huge," Trotz said. "It would probably put a lot of pressure on guys. He's a world-class player. He's a world-class talent. The one thing that Rad does is, Rad is passionate about winning and passionate about scoring goals and being a top player. I think it's great timing this week. Hopefully he gets here quick enough. I don't expect him to play against the Edmonton Oilers (on Tuesday), but I'd love to see him in Pittsburgh (on Thursday)."
