You have a point, but I ultimately feel that it's "safer" for the Isles if he stays in North America and we don't risk what you're saying in the KHL. He can always go back to Russia if he doesn't pan out in the O/A/NHL, but it would be tougher to get him over here if he makes a name for himself in the KHL.
