    • Radulov Back To Russia

      News: Alexander Radulov signed a four-year deal with CSKA Moscow of the KHL on Monday, according to Sport-Express's Slava Malamud.
      Analysis: Not surprising here, as Alexander Radulov did nothing to endear himself to the Nashville brass during the playoffs, missing curfew and getting himself suspended in the second round. He played nine regular season games with Nashville following his defection from the KHL back in March.
    • Radulov Looking To Return To Russia

      News: Alexander Radulov is negotiating a deal with CSKA Moscow of the Russian league, the Tennessean reports.
      Analysis: Alexander Radulov is looking to return to the KHL after his latest stint with Nashville, which started in late March. Though he was still an effective offensive player at the NHL level, tallying three goals and four assists in nine regular season games, he also received a one-game suspension in the playoffs for violating team rules, which probably didn't help his chances of remaining with the Preds. Radulov may be one of many NHL players heading overseas due to the uncertainty over the NHL's collective bargaining agreement.
    • Preds Moving On From Radulov

      News: The Predators will not bring back Alexander Radulov (knee), the Tennessean reports.
      Analysis: GM David Poile has indicated that he will try to trade Alexander Radulov's rights to another NHL team or simply let him go back to the Kontinental Hockey League. "The best way to characterize it is it's time to not pursue Rad anymore," Poile said. "If he wants to play in the KHL, that's fine. If he wants to play with another NHL team, I'd be willing to trade his rights." In his return to the Preds after several years in the KHL, Radulov notched seven points in nine regular season games, before adding six points in eight postseason contests. Radulov is a talent to be sure, but things really soured between him and the Preds when he was hit with a one-game suspension by the team in the playoffs for a violation of team rules.
    • Rangers After Preds' Radulov?

      News: The Rangers have contacted the Predators about Alexander Radulov's (knee) availability for next season, according to a report on
      Analysis: Oh, what a tangled web that has been weaved. The report suggests that while the enigmatic winger already has an offer from CSKA of the KHL on the table, he actually would prefer to remain in the NHL. The Preds have suspended him twice -- once for failing to report when he signed to play in the KHL the first time and then again this postseason for breaking team rules. It remains to be seen what value he might bring, but he's a guy who would surely love the lights (and attention) on Broadway. In related news, pigs cannot fly, but they work hard at trying.
    • Preds' Radulov Banged Up

      News: Alexander Radulov is dealing with what he calls a "minor" leg injury that he referred to as "just a little crack in the knee," the Tennessean reports.
      Analysis: Alexander Radulov, who notes that the issue will probably require surgery to repair, is headed for free agency this offseason, with a possible return to the Preds obviously not a lock after the forward was slapped with a one-game suspension during the playoffs due to a violation of team rules.
    • Radulov Expected To Play In Game 5 Monday.

      News: Alexander Radulov (healthy scratch) is expected to return to action for Game 5 on Monday against the Coyotes, The Tennessean reports.
      Analysis: Alexander Radulov, who missed Game 3 due to a suspension and then missed Game 4 due to a coaches decision, is expected to play in Game 5 on Monday. Radulov practiced with the second line Sunday.
    • Preds' Radulov Probable For Game 5

      News: Predators' coach Barry Trotz says there's a 'high probability' Alexander Radulov will return to action in Game 5 on Monday night, reports
      Analysis: And in other obvious news, we learn that dolphins swim in water and birds fly in air. Game 5 is a must-win for the Preds and Alexander Radulov is the team's leading scorer. Indiscretions aside, he needs to play for them to have a shot.
    • Preds' Radulov Won't Play Friday

      News: Alexander Radulov will not play in Friday's Game 4 against the Coyotes, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
      Analysis: Alexander Radulov, and teammate Andrei Kostitsyn, did not play in Game 3 due to a violation of team rules, and coach Barry Trotz will go with the same lineup for Game 4, meaning both will be absent from the lineup.
    • Predators' Radulov Takes Part In Optional Skate

      News: Alexander Radulov took part in Friday's optional skate, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
      Analysis: After missing Game 3 because of a violation of team rules, Alexander Radulov doesn't appear to be a lock to return for Friday's Game 4 against the Coyotes. Predators coach Barry Trotz said that his players were "pretty committed" on Wednesday, but there's certainly a chance Radulov is in uniform Friday night.
    • Preds' Radulov No Lock For Game 4

      News: Though Alexander Radulov's one-game suspension is up, he is not a lock to return to the Preds' lineup Friday against the Coyotes, the Tennessean reports.
      Analysis: The Predators won Game 3 (Phoenix still leads the series 2-1) on Wednesday, while both Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn sat, and there's a chance that coach Barry Trotz won't mess with success. "I know it's going to be very tough if I do anything," said Trotz on Thursday. "I thought everybody was pretty committed (on Wednesday), so I can't give you a definite decision right now. But the guys that were in got the job done and they played very hard, so it would be very difficult for me at this point to give you an exact lineup for tomorrow."
