You never say never, but it's a long shot." Poile might hold out on making any more significant moves until after the International Ice Hockey Federation rules on the Alexander Radulov matter. Radulov has signed a deal with to play in the Continental Hockey League despite still being under contract with the Nashville Predators. The IIHF has suspended Radulov while they investigate the matter.
