I've never seen him dominate at anything, and I doubt he had the mental and physical power to do that in the NHL. He was a pretty nice guy and very skilled, but the definition of a soft perimeter player who wilted into the background when things got tough. Going back to Russia to become a RSL/KHL superstar was the right decision.
