Afternoon Line

“... I will only note that this issue must be resolved with Salavat Yulaev (KHL team). Without a mutual agreement nothing is going to happen. This is because officially KHL contracts expire on April 30.

“Don’t try to get anything out of me. Let’s agree to this: I will have an understanding of the situation on March 15. We have to see what’s going on with Radulov’s knee… There are a lot of questions, including some about his health.”

-Alexander Radulov’s agent Yuri Nikolaev.  Read more on this if you wish via Dmitry Chesnokov of Puck Daddy.

I still don’t see what the point would be, since the deadline has passed and he would not be eligible to play.  I don’t see how his situation differs any from Turco’s…. the NHL put this rule in for a reason after, IIRC,  the Edmonton Oilers in the 1980’s used to bring in euros for the playoffs that had not played in the regular season.

The rule is specifically designed to prevent a situation like this.

Because people like Bob McKenzie have been talking that the NHL and NHLPA would agree to waive that pesky rule making him ineligible to allow him to play and finish up the last season on his entry-level deal.

I’d love to see him come back without having to clear waivers… and then promptly suspended and his contract tolled until next year.
