Yes, let Filatov "rot away" in his home country, where he can speak his mother tongue, is a star that women probably fawn over (let's be real, he'd have women on him even if he wasn't famous), and where he's making millions of dollars to do the EXACT same thing he'd do in Ottawa.

I don't understand the Filatov hate - but I also don't see the need to bring him over. He's not what we need atm. He's what we need if we have healthy Spezza and Karlsson, a sniper/playmaker than can make us even more dangerous. Bringing him over now to play with Greening and Condra will have the exact same result as last time, he'll become the whipping boy. Let him mature as a person and player over there til both the team and he are ready. If he never comes back so be it, but coming back now won't help and will likely only sour his relationship with Ottawa.
