He's never proven to be able to live up to the huge hype surrounding him. If he wasn't Russian, there would never had been the hype, if he were Canadian, you'd hardly ever hear about him, because he has never impressed, never dominated anywhere.
watch him play, he is arguably the best player at protecting the puck currently not in the nhl or khl

his puck protection along with his hands, hockey sense and size will make him an elite player in his prime
