The kicker is getting him over. He signed a two-year deal.

Tarasenko is coming, but will Lehtera leave for a checking center role? Not sure he can fill that in the NHL. Is he a winger? Maybe. I can't see him getting out of the deal to play for Peoria.

The Blues got him on an ELC...so my guess is at some point the option is there but not likely till 12-13. At that point who knows how he'll be playing. I would guess that his eventual arrival on this side would be similar to how Nikitin came over?

Will be interesting IMO to see how the KHL prospects (Nikitin, Lehtera, Andronov, and Tarasenko) turn out opposed to College/OHL > AHL track prospects.
