I picked him up as a free agent for my fantasy team this year, he's killing it. Holmgren is right though, teams just don't want to spend a valuable draft pick, and never see the player again. Like the Canucks, my fav team, drafting Kirill Koltsov with a 2nd rounder and then watch him dangling in the KHL for the rest of his life.

It is becoming more common for Russians to verbally desire to play in NHL, AHL, and CHL which is great. As long as you don't do it in the manner of Kabanov...

I think Bobrovsky is the front runner for the Calder right now.
