I actually don't wish him well in Ottawa. I hope he sucks and/or goes to the KHL.

This isn't like Jake.
Filatov was a waste here and I hope he continues to be a waste elsewhere.
All of this. I don't typically resent plyers traded away and mostly wish them well, but Little Niki's not really done anything to engender good will. I've given him slack as being a kid and needing to adjust and get his act together, but as a player I had pretty much decided he wasn't going to get it done. I'm also comfortable with the notion that, should nhe somehow put it together and become a good player, it's not reflective of how he would have played with the CBJ.
