Larry Brooks of the New York Post eyes a scenario that might not have Alexander Radulov returning to the KHL.

If Patrick Roy becomes coach of the Canadiens, Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin likely would inquire about Alexander Radulov, the Nashvillewinger who is an impending restricted free agent, and who won the Memorial Cup playing for Roy's QMJHL Quebec Ramparts in 2005-06.

While Brooks says nothing more than Bergevin would inquire, I would be very surprised if it all actually came to fruition. It is contingent on two things that I don't think are likely to happen. The first is Roy being named the head coach in Montreal. His name wasn't on the intial reported list of the first contacts. Secondly, I believe Radulov is already as good as gone to the KHL again.
