I'm surprised he hasn't received another NHL shot given the way he's destroyed the SEL and KHL over the past 3 seasons. Leading the KHL is goals last year is no small feat.

Still can't play defense, but you'd think someone would give him a look for what he can do on the PP.

Gah, what a frustrating player. Maybe the most frustrating ever. He's just so talented, one of the 2 or 3 purest natural goalscorers to come along in the past 2 decades. If he had a work ethic/defensive conscience he'd be scoring 40+ goals in the NHL every year.
