I just think Filatov needed a full season in the NHL to adjust and maybe a couple of breaks to keep his confidence up. If a couple posts ringed in, buried the empty netter or two, who isn't to say he isn't in the NHL right now with his skill set?

Problem is Columbus is not in an experimental situation, Ottawa makes sense in that there are a few starting spots available on the roster for young players in that rebuild.
