Will he head back to Russia to play in the KHL? Or, will he eventually be regular Blues forward?

Thanks for your input!
I can't tell you what his intentions are after this year, but Grachev is rather puzzling. He seems to have everything: good size, good speed, good hands, good shot etc. but it doesn't seem to translate into scoring. Even in the AHL he hasn't really set the world on fire, and that's a league where I think he should really thrive. I don't know what's going to happen with him.
