He's already said he's coming back. He should be in St. Louis on Friday. If he wanted to stay in Russia and be a bright star in the KHL, he certainly could. He's said multiple times that his dream is to play in the NHL, and there's a team and a city that would love to have him. It's not going to be rainbows and sunshine and him instantly averaging a point per game, there will be issues with culture change, rink size, play style, as well as language barriers, but he has his head on straight, and he's a hard worker so I don't expect too many transition issues. I remember he was confused when he was told by his agent that St. Louis was holding a press conference for his arrival. I think he will be pleasantly surprised by the ovation he receives when his name is announced for the first time at Scott Trade.
