I'm sure AV had a part in this just like he did with Coho being traded.

Shirokov is in the KHL because he wasn't given a fair chance in the NHL.

And it was Raymond or Grabner. We know AV likes Raymond.
But Raymond isn't a grinder. I thought he only liked grinders...

Who should have Hodgson played more minutes over? He was 7th or 8th in ES time on ice last year. It's not like he was playing 8 minutes a game.

Grabner was an all-skill, nothing else type player. If he wasn't scoring, he wasn't doing anything. Not the kind of player that fits in AVs system. Why should AV change his system for a player that may or may not be a full time NHLer.

It seems 29 other teams didn't feel Shirokov deserved what you would call "a fair shot".
