Kondratiev is quietly making a case for himself

They were briefly discussing this today on Mojo. It seems likely that Kondratiev won't make the team b/c of the klee signing, and Im inclined to believe he would use his contract option and go back to Russia instead of play with a packed St. Johns roster. Heck, maybe the Leafs would request he opted to go back. Thats not to say he won't be a part of this team's future, but perhaps another year of playing with men won't hurt. Obviously, you lose out as he doesn't gain the experience of the North American game he could otherwise get in St Johns (as well as the fact that he could be used as an injury callup). And you have to factor in the ice time he'd get in either situation as well.
Should be interesting to see where Max plays this year.
