Agreed. Radulov is a really good player, if he can readjust to the NA game

Crosby's return is Thursday because the Pens didn't like that the Preds and Rad-u-love were taking the spotlight from Crosby :pop:.

Radulov wants to leave right now but the out-clause in his KHL contract doesn't kick-in until April 30th. Before then, give back 2/3rds of your salary to your KHL team if you depart.

"I don't expect him to play against the Edmonton Oilers (Tuesday) but I'd like to see him in Pittsburgh (Thursday) … if everything is correct," Trotz said.

Trotz hopes to have Radulov in lineup by Thursday

Radulov returning, barring a last minute "intervention" by the Russian mob at the airport to make him re-consider getting on that plane :D

For some reason, I'm very curios to see how Radulov does.

I'm seeing a lot of bickering on Twitter today. Salavat agreed to let Radulov go, but apparently there's a KHL rule that say a player cannot terminate their contract between the start of playoffs and April 30.

Radulov's Russian agent for him in the KHL says there was a payoff to break the contract, and it wasn't made by Radulov but instead by some other benefactor. Apparently, Salavat will retain Radulov's rights in the KHL if he returns there.

Good. Exactly what needed to happen in this case. Can't wait to see him play in the NHL again. The few KHL games I've seen this year he's been more than noticeable in a very good way. I really hope the Preds go far this year. I'd love a Pens-Preds SCF. It would be some amazing hockey.

I liked that too!

With Radulov winning the MVP over in the KHL twice and seemingly a lock again for it, he's got nothing to accomplish there any more. I doubt he just steps right into the Nashville line up without some NHL-style rust and the rather harsh reality of playing the Barry Trotz way, but he was there for 2 years before and knows the routine. He could have been moved by Nashville elsewhere as Poile has stated several times he offered to deal Radulov's rights but Radulov said he was fine coming back to Nashville.

Preds are already really good this year and once the playoffs start, Radulov will probably be getting more acclimated to the NHL style again. This could be a very dangerous team with the kind of goaltending and commitment that can win Cups. Radulov bring some pure skill to the mix is like making a blockbuster deal at the trade deadline, but you didn't have to give anything at all up.

Stardom/attention. He still felt he had something to prove in Russia. He also didn't like the entry level money.

He went to Russia. Became arguably the to player in the league, won some games, got paid.

So it's a Russian thing (see Malkin, Gene) to do the )))) when Tweeting.

Also, he has a double chin.
