from Josh Cooper of the Tennessean,
The Alexander Radulov era in Nashville will likely come to an end soon.
Predators general manager David Poile said today he’s looking to trade the forward’s rights to another NHL team or allow him to return to the Kontinental Hockey League.
“The best way to characterize it is it’s time to not pursue Rad anymore,” Poile said. “If he wants to play in the KHL that’s fine, if he wants to play with another NHL team I’d be willing to trade his rights.”
When asked if it would be safe to say that Radulov won’t be with the Predators next season, Poile said: “I would say right now that would be safe to say.”
