Riha is one of the best KHL coaches (may be top 3). And he can coach Russian players.
The difference is Tarasenko's willingness to go into the corners and battle. Tarasenko's style seems perfect for Hitchcock, exact opposite of Filatov. Talent was never the question for any of these players and Hitchcock. Zherdev played well with Hitch, and Filatov was just an NHL bust.
