After the Nashville Predators got off the ice for morning skate, the excitement was palpable. Alexander Radulov is coming home. But what do the players and coaches think about adding him to the dressing room this late in the season? *** Patric Hornqvist, on whether or not the addition of Radulov would disrupt the team: “No, everybody knows their role. He’s a great player. That’s the best player we can get right now. That transfer is (finished) and we can get a top six forward so it’s great for us. And he’s been here before so that helps too.” Hornqvist, on what he would say to other teams’ GM’s and fans who are complaining about Radulov being added to the roster this late in the season:  ”That’s up to them but… It’s part of life.” Roman Josi, on whether adding the Russian sniper will be an issue in the locker room: “I played against him in the World Championships in Switzerland. I don’t know him personally but I think it’s going to be fine. We have a great group of guys here.
