Those in the NHL and Nashville in particular might view him a certain negative way, and justly so. I don't see how that would effect how he is thought of back home where he decided to leave the NHL to come home and play in his country's league. He always plays hard for his country and while North Americans may find him brash and cocky, Russians likely see him as a confident, proud countryman. From their perspective, there is no reason to look down on him at all. If anything, I'd imagine he gets more press throughout the year in the KHL than the guys in the NHL.
