With this morning's loss to team AK Bars, Radulov's KHL team, Salavat Yulaev has been officially eliminated from the playoffs with a 4-2 series defeat. Thus begins the wait for Preds fans everywhere. Does Rads make a move the NHL this season? It would only make sense to strike now while the iron's hot:
For one, his KHL season has ended early, which will provide him ample time to prepare his reintegration into the Pred's NHL squad, play a few regular season games, and satisfy his entry-level contract.
Secondly, this is a legitimate shot to contend for the cup on a team poised to make a deep run - especially if he can provide them with another proven scoring threat. What will happen? Only time will tell.
