Buzz: Deciding On Alex Radulov

8:58AM: In the Edmonton Journal, Jim Matheson writes that if Radulov doesn’t go back to Russia, the Rangers are the best bet to acquire his rights.

He notes that the Rangers would likely send Brandon Dubinsky back to Nashville for Radulov unless the Preds want someone like Derek Stepan.

2:56AM: In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers interest in Alexander Radulov is dependent upon how the organization sees his upside as compared to other players who could be available like Zach Parise.

Brooks writes that while the Rangers may still be deciding on Radulov, one other NHL team seems ready to pull the trigger on a deal for the rights to Radulov.

He notes that it does seem like Radulov would like to continue his career in the NHL and not in the KHL.
