The KHL attempts to buy-out the contract of Alexander Radulov, Bill Daly says the NHL will not even consider it in a story from the AP via the Globe and Mail.
Update 3:07pm ET: More from John Glennon at The Tennessean—
The NHL has no choice but to play hardball in the Alexander Radulov case, because of a couple of reasons.
First of all, one of its teams has taken a severe and unexpected hit, faced with the prospect of losing one of the more talented young forwards in the game. Second, the NHL has to fight precedent, because if Radulov is allowed to play in Russia this season, there’s no telling which young European star might next be tempted by a big offer while still under contract.
