Why would Filatov be a different player with a change of scenery? He couldn't play for Ken Hitchcock and can't play for Scott Arniel. Hitchcock is just as demanding as Tortorella. Arniel and Tortorella like to play a same style. Torts and Arniel know each other from Buffalo and they believe in the same things required in a hockey player. Filatov was demoted to Springfield for a reason. Why would Filatov be different in NY when he has failed under two coaches who demand and preach the same things Torts wants from his players? After the failed Zherdev experiment and Frolov's shaky status with the Rangers,why would Sather give up anything significant for Filatov who bolted to the KHL last season?
