Yes.

If it was so necessary that Kuznetsov stay in Russia to be assured of a place on the Olympic team, then did Tarasenko sacrifice his chance at the Russian team when he signed with the Blues in June?

Tarasenko even came over to St. Louis to practice with Blues players prior to the lockout and has said that he will return to the Blues when the lockout is over.
