I'd bring him over. What have we got to lose?
So it's the coaches fault? The Jack Adams runner up's fault? The coach everybody loves on here, his fault? Butler seems to be hanging on in the NHL in NJ still.

Filatov had his chance & if he would have stayed in Bingo like I've said a hundred times he would be up in Ottawa now. The guy made his bed & he can sleep in it, he made the decision to go back, not Ottawa. Some said it was a money issue back home. Regardless, I said it was a huge mistake at the time & that he would never be back after that & I stand by it. Too bad what could have been if not for bad advice & bad decisions but his whole career has been that way since he was drafted it seems. Filatov is the poster boy for why we should not draft Russian players, they are a flight risk. We shouldn't trade for them either.
