The timing couldn't be better to package the rights to Alexander Radulov in a trade for a top forward. Its been over 3 years now that he bolted for the KHL and I believe he has one year left on his KHL contract. Reports show he has interest in returning to the NHL, but with the impending CBA set to expire and him coming of age to be a free agent Radulov is looking for loopholes in the system to keep from having to honoring his entry level contract. There is no way he will ever play for Nashville without it including a prolonged court battle or a top level 5 to 7 million dollar contract. I say trade his rights now. Toronto or Montreal would have the best chance of luring him back. and they have plenty of dollars and plenty of assets. I presonally would like to see the Preds to get Montreal's 2012 first and second pick for him. But at this point anything would be better than a drawn out wait with nothing in return.
