Alexander Radulov is reportedly seeking a two-year, $15 million contract to play in the NHL.
Radulov had 23 goals and 65 points in 53 KHL contests in 2015-16. In a best case scenario, he might actually be worth that high asking price based on his offensive capabilities. However, it would be surprising to see an NHL team agree to those terms given the risk associated with a 30-year-old (as of July) forward who has spent the vast majority of the last eight seasons in Europe. On top that, he had an off-ice incident in his last stint with the Nashville Predators in 2012, so that just adds another element of risk to signing him. Maybe a team will be willing to pay him that kind of annual salary for a one-year deal, but committing to a second season might be a sticking point. Jun 4 - 6:28 PM

The Detroit Red Wings reportedly have interest in signing Alexander Radulov.

In order to limit the risk associated with Radulov though, the Red Wings reportedly only want to agree to a one-year deal. Radulov's offensive talent is clear, but Detroit's concerns lie with his off-ice demeanor. A previous report also brought up the New York Rangers as a potential suitor for Radulov.
Jun 3 - 8:59 AM

The New York Post is reporting that the Rangers are 'doing their due diligence' on unrestricted free agent Alexander Radulov.

Radulov is a world class talent but his off-ice 'problems' will make most teams wary about signing him. Radulov was selected 15th overall in 2004 by Nashville but bolted "Music City" after a couple of seasons to play in his home country of Russia. He returned briefly four seasons ago to Nashville for 17 games including eight in the playoffs but got into some off-ice problems and returned to the KHL where he has been a star offensively. Stay tuned as rumors persist that Radulov wants to return to the NHL at the age of 29.

It would appear that Alexander Radulov is "leaning" towards returning to the NHL.

The on-again, off-again scorer is considering multiple offers including a multi-year offer from CSKA. While there's no indication with whom Radulov appears to be nearing an agreement with, his preferred timeline at least appears to be sooner rather than later.

Don't be surprised if Detroit goes after free agent Alexander Radulov this off-season.

Radulov apparently wants to come back to the NHL after a number of season in the KHL. Detroit and Colorado are two of the teams on the list of clubs he wants to talk to. The Red Wings may have the cash to sign Radulov to a short-term deal if they can move the contract ($7.5 million) of Pavel Datsyuk, who is almost certain to retire.
Apr 30 - 9:50 AM

Alexander Radulov intends to play in the NHL next season.

Radulov is coming off a season where he scored 23 goals and 65 points in 53 KHL contests. His last NHL comeback attempt with Nashville didn't go well as he was suspended for breaking curfew, but given his level of offensive talent, there has to be teams willing to roll the dice on him.
Apr 29 - 5:27 PM

Alexander Radulov did not report to Russia's opening camp for the IIHF World Championship.

Radulov is in New York now, but he is slated to join Russia's team later in the week. He has also reportedly turned down multiple contract extension offers from CSKA Moscow because he wants to return to the NHL. Colorado is still considered to be the favorite, but there is some interest from other clubs.
Apr 25 - 5:35 PM

Patrick Roy is reportedly trying to leverage his previous experience with Alex Radulov in an effort to lure him over to the Colorado Avalanche.

Mind you, they're angling towards Radulov possibly coming back over for the 2016-17 campaign when Radulov will be entering his age-30 season. Roy and Radulov's coach-player relationship dates back to the 2005-06 season with the Quebec Remparts, where Radulov had 32 goals and 75 points in 65 games en route to a Memorial Cup victory. For what it's worth, Radulov is coming off his best KHL season with a 24 goals and 71 points plus the scoring title.

Alexander Radulov netted two goals, including the game-winner, in Russia's 4-0 win over Norway.

It wasn't a beauty by any stretch of the imagination, but it got the job done. Radulov also recorded an assist, giving him six points in four games. Ilya Kovalchuk and Alexei Tereshenko accounted for the Russian's other markers. Pavel Datsyuk assisted on three of Russia's four goals.

Alexander Radulov scored the game-winning goal in Russia's 1-0 shootout win over Slovakia.

Radulov was nearly made a healthy scratch after taking some bad penalties against the United States on Saturday. Alexander Ovechkin fired a team-high six shots on goal, but had nothing to show for it. Ovechkin has a goal and two points in three games.

Despite his previous statement, Russia coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov didn't scratch Alexander Radulov.

After Radulov took some costly penalties in Russia's loss to Team USA on Saturday, Bilyaletdinov suggested that the forward should be scratched. Instead, Radulov is playing on a line with Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk on Sunday.

Alexander Radulov could be out of the lineup Sunday when Russia takes on Slovakia.

Team USA scored both regulation goals in its 3-2 win while Radulov was in the penalty box on two bad penalties. Russian coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov was not happy after the game, saying, "Yes, he needs to be scratched among other things. We expected more of Radulov. He didn't live up to our expectations." The winger had an assist and was a plus-one in the game, but no coach has much tolerance for a player costing his team.

Alexander Radulov is going to be taking a lot of heat over Russia's 3-2 shootout loss to the U.S. Saturday.

Although he registered an assist on one of Pavel Datsyuk's goals, he took two very bad penalties that led to both the American's power-play goals in regulation. It will be interesting to see how much playing time he receives going forward.
Sat, Feb 15, 2014 10:34:00 AM

Alexander Radulov collected two assists in CSKA Moscow's 2-1 win against SKA St. Petersburg on Wednesday, reaching 300 career KHL points.

That's an impressive number given that he's only played in 245 KHL games, but it also must make some fans - particularly Nashville Predators fans - wonder what could have been in the NHL. His North American resume is scant with 102 points (47 goals, 55 assists) in 154 NHL games, including seven in nine regular season contests during his brief return to Nashville.
