Radulov having second thoughts?

From Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! Sports:

Absolute bombshell dropped by NHLPA executive director Paul Kelly on Bill Watters’s radio show yesterday up on 640am in Toronto (audio): That Alexander Radulov, the former Nashville Predators winger at the center of a very contentious dispute between the NHL and the KHL, wants to leave to leave the new Russian league only a few games into his career there.

Perhaps all this talk about arbitration is so the KHL can keep a player who wants to leave, rather than the NHL getting back a player who broke his contract …

From Kelly on the Watters show, regarding whether the Radulov situation will be resolved before reaching court:


“My information is that the player very much wants to return and play in the NHL. I have that on extremely good authority. He’s tried the KHL. He’s seen what it has to offer for a few games already. He was quite successful last year for the Nashville Predators. I think, long-term, Alexander wants to play in the NHL. I believe there is an outcome which is doable, which will involve some type of an agreement between the NHL, the KHL, the player himself and the Predators.” 

Even after the KHL named him rookie of the week!
