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.
When he is 25-26 are picks like Zibanejad Silfverberg Noesen Puempel Stone and Prince could all be regulars by then ..
Filatov fits a serious need now and after this season if he makes his statement and stays or he is back too KHL ..
Needing offence is a huge need right now getting Stone Prince Filatov in the lineup could help now
Silfverberg Turris Alfie
Filatov Da Costa Milo
Prince Zibanejad Stone
Condra Smith Neil
extras Daugs and Greening
Scorers and play makers across the board
