Maybe it would be a different story if he played better in the World Championships. 5 goals in 21 career WHC games isn't a great accomplishment, and while we can argue that he didn't always have a lot of playing time, he plays on the most loaded position in Team Russia.

Frankly, to this day I wonder if he would make it to the NHL. I think it would be the same case as Zherdev, Radulov, Zuccarello, Omark and so on.
All different stories.
Mozyakin needs to play the 1st line with great playmaker to be what he is regarded as nowdays, hard to imagine an NHL team giving him that role, but if someone did, well, it would have been fun.
