Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
NHL Deputy Commissioner Billy Daly and Nashville Predators GM David Poile were in discussion over lunch Monday after the GMs meetings broke up.
Neither were available for comment, but my bet is they were once again discussing the possible arrival of Alexander Radulov from Russia.
Poile and Daly were in constant contact over the past week because the league had to rule on Radulov’s possible re-entry to the NHL. A source told ESPN.com that the league decided Radulov would not require NHL waivers if he decided to return and he would be eligible for both the regular season and playoffs.
Talk about a bonus for Nashville if that happens. And talk about some possibly angry NHL team rivals.
The league also needed the NHLPA to sign off on it and the union did, a source told ESPN.com.
