Slava Malamud of Sport-Express brings news this afternoon which raises the likelihood that regardless of how much the Nashville Predators might want to sign Alexander Radulov to a new contract, they'll face major competition from the KHL, due to a new wrinkle in their salary cap rules announced today.

Whether you're a hockey player or fan, the Hockey Gear HQ email newsletter brings you money-saving deals.

Here are the tweets from Malamud which came across today:

And make no mistake, there are a few clubs (SKA St. Petersburg, for example, which is led by KHL President Alexander Medvedev) with the resources to compete with a high-end NHL offer. Will Radulov choose the highest bidder, take the opportunity to play with the KHL team of his choice, or commit to the NHL and test himself for a full season in the world's best hockey league?

No matter how this works out, have we seen a player in recent years who has had league rules & customs ignored, changed, or set aside due to his personal circumstances so often?
