A lot of european talent got wasted in NA minor leagues. I don't see it as a problem development wise for Kuznetsov if he stays.
Oh, I agree with that, but in Kuznetsov's case he wasn't going to toil in the minor leagues. And NHL competition is better, especially if you're talking about North American style.

I don't know where he is in terms of physical development so I won't try to figure when is the optimal time for him to come over. But he should have been able to make the Caps next season, and in that case the NHL is better competition for him than the KHL as an NHL prospect.
