Yes, and no. He did have a future in the NHL. Absolutely. Could have been an effective player with the NYR. Unfortunately he was not given a legitimate chance here. I can't blame him for wanting to sign to a team, for what is probably a nice salary, and play in the 2nd best league in the world (and no, its not the AHL).

In my opinion he was too talented to be in the AHL, and his talent was not utilized properly. If he stuck with this organization, chances are he would not have had that chance. At least he will get to showcase his talent now. He will have a two year contract to prove himself in the KHL. When he does, I would not doubt teams in the NHL giving him a 2nd chance.
