I think we have found a new loop hole that needs to be fixed. I am surprised he is being welcomed with open arms from the team he left. I also feel that he may not make the kind of impact that should worry any playoff team.

If Nashville does well and Radulov is a force there is going to be alot of noise about this. But even without him Nasville is a legitiment threat this year, they are solid from the blueline back. I am glad they are shaping up to be Detroits' 1st round opponent, it means we will only have to go through 1 of those two. Maybe neither.

A lot of whining and sour grapes in here. Radulov had an existing NHL contract with the Preds. Its not like Turco who was signed to a new contract afer the deadline. And its not some huge loophole that other teams are going to exploit. Seriously, what star player would allow himself to be buried in another league and have his NHL contract suspended just so they could bring him back at some point in the future to help a potential cup run? It's a unique situation that I can't see being used a a strategy by any other team. For those of you saying there should be a pealty. There is. By bringing Radulov back now they are essentially burning off the remaining year he owes them for a couple weeks of regular season games and the playoffs. It's their risk to take. Quit whining.. If the Canucks where in the same situation and Gillis bolstered the teams chance at a cup by making the same move you'd be lauding him as a genius.

Should they? no
Will they? yes, but only because it's an open loophole and they kind of have to.
Will the loophole be closed in the next CBA? abso-freakin-lutely.

I agree, with all the attention he's getting they may have well put laurels on his head and driven him from the airport through Nashville on a chariot. Seems they are quick to forgive him when things are going well for them, let's see what happens when/if things start going south.

I hear what you are saying but I just feel that the rosters should be frozen after the trade deadline. Even if he is under contract, he was not playing in the NHL or AHL before the deadline.

That is a good point you brought up. Let's see what happens when things don't work out. They have 2 huge free agents that need to be re-signed in Webber and Sutter. If Radulov has not changed his mentality it could drive these guys to sign elsewhere. Furthermore, can this guy play in the NHL, let alone in the playoffs. He could just destroy the teams chemistry created all season long.

Why make the distinction between the AHL and the KHL?. The fact remains that Nashville had the player under contract. By your logic a star player who was off all year rehabbing an injury and was on the LTIR instead of the active roster shouldn't be able to return after the trade deadline becasue the rosters are frozen.
