Alexander Radulov is apparently setting the bar high.

The former Nashville Predators forward is eyeing a return to the NHL after four seasons in the KHL, but his contract demands reportedly far exceed what at least one team is willing to pay.

"A number of teams are interested in Alex Radulov, no question about that, including Detroit," TSN's Darren Dreger reported on Friday's edition of "Insider Trading."

MLive's Ansar Khan reported Thursday that the Red Wings were reluctant to give Radulov more than one year and more than $5 million.

"The belief is the Red Wings are comfortable (with) a one-year deal at around four million, but a couple of NHL sources have indicated he wants two years at $7.5 million per (season)," Dreger reported Friday.

Radulov notched 65 points in 53 regular-season games for CSKA Moscow this season, adding 16 points in 20 playoff contests. He led the team to the Gagarin Cup Final, which it lost in seven games to Metallurg Magnitogorsk.

The 29-year-old winger registered 47 goals and 102 points in 154 games over two stints with the Predators, the first coming between 2006 and 2008, followed by his return for the 2011-12 campaign.
