Comparing Tarasenko to Filatov is a joke, as well as the argument about Hitchcock and Russians.
I don't agree with the "Hitchcock hates Russians" neither, even if there's a long list of Russian players he didn't trust in, the day KH will get another good one, there won't be any issue IMO. Though on precedent posts that you quoted, people were arguing about Tarasenko skills.

Unless you're a Blues fan, it seems like that it shouldn't be a big deal to understand that Tarasenko will not be a proven elite forward until he finally plays the game there. it's neither a big deal to admit that his defence needs to get better for the NHL standards also.

You guys are being too sensitive. Criticism is not necessarily bashing. Yes, jumping the KHL to play in NHL is tough but Tarasenko's still a tremendous prospect that will probably reach his potential, which is quite impressive.
