I direct both of you to a city like Buffalo, or perhaps even New Jersey or Brooklyn (Islanders). The weather and economy in Columbus trumps Buffalo, Pittsburgh, or Detroit in a heartbeat. New Jersey and the Islanders (wherever they end up) are both going to be dismal for years to come, and are in generally undesirable areas.

To me, this is just an overrated athlete garnering long-desired but long-missed attention, turning the cameras on himself to prove that he's nothing but a useless, overpaid loudmouth.

If things are so bad here in North America, he can stay in Russia with his fellow over-hyped brother Andrei and former "superstar" teammate Alexander Radulov, who proved that even overweight players can dominate in the KHL.
