This is precisely the challenge Jacques Lemaire was faced with and it is a key reason why the Devils may hesitate giving Ilya ill money.
It should read Journeyman Mathieu Schneider has no clue, particularly about what league he will be playing in next season.

And maybe, just maybe, if Ilya has that effect on his own teammates, maybe he's that much more unpredictable to his opponents, too?
