Why, oh why, did he go the CHL? The kid ruined his own career.
Playing in the CHL was good for him, since Russian teams are absolutely awful at handling their young players.

But Buffalo made a big mistake by making him play in the NHL at such a young age, while everyone knew he wasn't ready.

It's nice that they are admitting their mistake by sending him back though.
