Whatever Lemtyugov's level of play, I think he deserves to go down in Blues history as a guy that was willing to come to North America and give it his best shot. He wasn't willing to spend his entire career in the AHL, which I think is understandable. Even after he left, he acknowledged that it might have been a mistake. I'd have loved to have seen him succeed as an NHL player, but not sure that was realistically in his future. But the guy followed his dream and gave it his best shot. I think he earned some respect from Blues fans, even if it didn't work out.
