Not only do we stop to ask ourselves, a Jr league was created, and an AHL alernative was created. Players are given more and more lucrative options to stay home and develop without radically having to change their lives just to play hockey. It's not going unnoticed, if that's what you're implying.
And somehow you think he'll be playing in a professinal league in Russia? If he stayed he's either playing miniscule minutes on his KHL team while being scratched half the time, or playing for his MHL team, which I'm not sure how anyone coul argue is better for his development than the CHL.
