How exactly did Koko turn out? He's going to the KHL because he thinks he'll improve more there playing against men than he would in the OHL, wasn't AHL-eligible when the decision was made, and has no chance of making Boston's roster this season. He's told the Boston coaches and media why he's doing this and has committed to return when he's closer to being NHL-ready. I see no problem with what he did.
