He struggles in the more finesse driven pass the puck until you find an opening European style. he gets demoted because of this and then his development is slowed or stunted...

Plus I think the UFA rules stayed largely the same in the new CBA so yes, the Kings are in fact losing years off his ELC and years before he becomes a UFA by him staying over there.
That's so bogus. Why should the Kings be punished while Russia is in theory making money off of him?
