Now if I really wanted to extrapolate, I could point out about how CBJ management called up Filatov last year so he could “soak in” the playoff chase atmosphere, which really didn't strike anyone as a puzzling move. And how that probably had nothing to do with wooing him, getting him out of the minors, putting him in a nice hotel and letting him enjoy the spoils of professional life. Kid just LOVED Syracuse, right?
Or I could note that, for all the talk of earning a spot, an examination of the roster would seem to indicate he’s guaranteed a spot on the NHL club, despite the fact that he only played a few games (and was used sparingly for most) and is AHL eligible.
And I could mention, as others have, that if the KHL isn’t a thought or isn’t an issue (now or down the road) why discuss it, why address it, sorta like a significant other constantly referencing a past relationship, just to remind you there’s options.
But I’m not going to do that, cuz that'd all be absurd, right?
