Actually you guys may be on to something. I think he would probably prefer to come over at the end of a season since he is playing regularly in the KHL so hes comfortable and in game shape, and he most liekly wont be sent down to the A if he doesn't produce since the season would be pretty much over down there.

Though its a double edged sword here. We have one more shot with him, and if we take it now and miss thats it. Personally, I would much rather wait until hes 25-26 or so and try and talk him into coming over.

At that age he won't be a UFA yet (correct me if im wrong) and hopefully matured a little bit more than he is currently. Also thats a couple more years to put on some mass which would be beneficial to his game imo.
