Well, in the KHL's defense, he is the reigning MVP (3 years in a row, actually) and he won the Gagarin Cup with Ufa last year. So he's a pretty highly prized player in the KHL.

What I think that shows, however, is the disparity in the talent level and work ethic from the KHL to the NHL.


Couldn't agree with you more in terms of the disparity in talent. However, do you think the reason why the work ethic is so low in the KHL is predominantly the result of the the fact that the league is so flush with cash? Or is there really no difference in work ethic, and high profile guys like Radulov give that league a bad rep?

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

It seems that the offer of $36m/4y was tendered by a KHL team, not the Predators.


I don't read Russian but when translated the article does say that it was Nashville that made the offer.

I agree that a KHL team makes more sense throwing out that kind of money though. With no cap you can be as stupid as you want with your money.

meh.

I was kind of hoping that Nashville would strap themselves to that loser, making it harder to re-sign Suter. But Poile's too smart for that.

Well if Nashville did indeed offer him $9M per year, guess they weren't too set on keeping Suter around....btw, if that indeed was an offer, what the hell is it going to take to sign Parise?

That's what I was thinking. Nashville is already going to have trouble signing a complete roster, much less while throwing 9m at a single player who has yet to prove anything in this league.

There isn't the faintest chance that Nashville offered Radulov $9m per year, so I don't know why any of you are still making reference to that rumor.

That article was dated April 9. Any rumor/speculation it was based on is certainly obsolete by now.

What is the story with Radulov? I see people call him P.O.S. and everything but I do not know his story. Im not defending him I just somehow missed the stuff he has done. Can someone tell me what is the reason so many people hate him?

He signed his deal with Ufa in the KHL while still under contract with the Nashville Predators. So he bolted for more money while still contractually obligated to Nashville.

Then, there's this...

And then there's his antics in the Phoenix series that caused his suspension...

I'd bet that Radulov's days in the NHL are done. I doubt that any team in the league would be willing to bring on his baggage. Especially when he can go back to his native Russia, get paid 3x more than he's really worth, and (likely) get his salary paid tax-free.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

I agree, I highly doubt the Preds actually offered that, but that was the rumor.

It came from a Russian website, so it could be his agent trying to drive up his price.

apparently, it was published on April 9th. here: http://www.belarusho...ews/news113494/

and it looks and sounds like a speculation.


Edit: oops! did not all posts.

WTF?!?! This guy is nuts! How come the coach didn't do anything? He wouldn't play another minute if he did this in the NHL! What a jackass. Lets see him try that with someone like Dale Hunter...HEH HEH HEH!

According to TSN the Wings are not pursuing Radulov and will go UFA route instead.

I would have thought that was so much a given, that the Wings wouldn't consider this side-car mercenary... an article in TSN seems redundant.

Agreed. I never even gave thought to the Wings pursuing Rads. I'm not sure anyone except for whoever wrote that piece did.
