It IS absolute speculation right now but finding out what he's earning in the KHL will be key. If it's over $4M per, I think it could be a problem, not so much the matching but 'being forced to match or surpass' would end up an issue with management.

I dunno, 55 points plus led the LEAGUE in takeaways after having just turned 21 years old sounds pretty good to me. The upside is certainly there. The return wouldn't be elite PLUS but it would certainly be a darn good player.
