Here's my issue with Filatov - if he had simply decided to put his head down and work hard, meaning accepting what the team thought was best for him and staying in NA, he would have been playing in the AHL and earning the chance to step up to the NHL in case of injuries. This season has had an unusual amount of injuries, but even with a normal amount he would have gotten lots of chances. Most guys that do that in our organization get rewarded with NHL games.

So that's the part I can't figure out. People say he never got the chance or he got some kind of unfavourable treatment, but he just needed to toe the company line a little bit and he would have benefited a lot out of it. Instead he goes to the KHL and takes himself out of the system.
