Disappointing. I thought you were being specious for the hell of it, which I'd applaud .

But now... I am sorry, but you don't lead the KHL in points ahead of Radulov, Malkin and Kovalchuk at this stage of a star infused season there without being flat out able to play.

He can be a perimeter guy all he wants if he can execute well enough, score and set up people. Then it is all down to his own wishes to relocate, family, money requirements etc. Those things can kill it, sure. Fair enough. But if they don't, I don't buy the stereotypes.

Attach him to Malkin/Neal and if that doesn't work I will be the one to defaecate, on my own floor.
