Filatov ain't doing great in the KHL right now as well. Sure you can point out to Niederreiter who scored just a point in 56 games, but is still considered as a top prospect. I mean Filatov got much worse treatment comparing to Niederreiter. Or say Kadri. But anyway he wasn't good enough to win a place in the NHL team's roster.
But Tarasenko is a very different player. He actually plays defense. He forchecks and backchecks, and he has a very strong mentality. And he alredy has better KHL statistics than Filatov being 1.5 years younger.
