Unless you seem to think he will automatically do better in the AHL I don't see how your argument has any legitimate stance.
Do you disagree that he could play at least a little with the Oilers next year? If he's so good, he should be able to. So why not prove it?

It might not matter to you where it happens, but it clearly matters to NHL teams. We've seen it over and over. At least if he fails in the NHL, he can say he's been there and tried. If he fails in Russia, he might never get the chance.

But hey, at least he'll have some more spending money.
