Ok, sorry for being no help at all in my first post but I feel like I've posted these reasons about numerous players so many times it gets boring to do it over and over again.

He's typical case of "not good enough to play in the top-6, non-existent in the bottom-6 role". Weak two-way play, lack of size and physicality and star status in the KHL meaning the unlikely acceptance of the two-way deal/unwillingness to spend time in the AHL at the age of 28. And with Leafs team being pretty stacked on wings there's no way he makes the show out of the training camp.
