Last season in PO Taras played without Kovy in the fourth line with even smaller ice time and showed the same performance.
It was a big issue in a media this spring whether will he go to NHL or will sign with SKA.
Frankly, I thought he would stay in KHL. Mainly, because of coach.
Whether will Taras suit to Hitchcock style of game it's a question
I remember Hitchcock said after the lost game: "That's what happens when players try to use skills". I think that skillful teams like Pittsburgh would suit him better.
Hitchcock doesn't like much to work with talented young players.
