Lehtera's future with the Blues is still up in the air at this point. We Blues fans have heard the knocks on him were skating and defensive play. But I'd say none of us have watched him enough to know if that's true or not. Maybe a Russian poster who has seen him in the KHL can chime in on this?
It will come down to whether Lehtera is willing to spend any time in the AHL or not. I don't blame the guy if he wants to earn a better paycheck in the KHL but if his goal is to play in the NHL then he may have to spend some time in the AHL if those issues we've heard are actually true. Plus the Blues have Phil McRae(who has taken a big step forward over the past year) in the mix for that position as well.
