They must have it fixed in a way that he doesn't spend the 6 months here because it simply doesn't make sense to pay so much extra taxes.
Since Filppula has an American girlfriend, could be he spends more time in the summer in the US? Or since his NHL salary isn't that big, he doesn't mind paying taxes for it?
