Does anyone know the details of what it would take to get Radulov here? Is he still under some kind of contract with Nashville? The guy is often seen as the best KHL player, and would bring a ton of offense. I just worry about whether his game would translate well in North America. He was a bit disappointing last year for Nashville in the playoffs.

He's under contract in the KHL for 3 more years at something like 9 million...pretty sure he's a UFA in the NHL, but highly unlikely that he'll come over again.

Nah, Nashville still owns his rights for at least one more year.  But yeah, I thought about this when I saw him and Loktionov and Kovalchuk on the same line - ain't happening with that contract.  I think he's staying in the KHL for good.

he is never coming back to the NHL. even after that KHL contract is done, which has no out clause. the only way is if the entire KHL folds but beyond that, he's not coming back.

This, pretty much. Insane salary demands coupled with being as far from a Devils-type player as possible.

here's a french article saying that Halak had an intense verbal argument with Hitchcock before game 4 and that things are bad in the lockerroom and that Halak wants out. I think he would be a good stopgap

If I had to guess, it might be some idle rumor chatter to get Habs fans talking about something else than their heartbreak and Carey Price's mystery injury.
