.5 Pts/Game in an inferior league for a soft offensive player with declining stats is NOT impressive.
I have no idea how his brain/effort level is progressing. However I would be VERY surprised if he ever gets an invite to a camp without showing significant improvement.
Well reports are that he actually played quite well this year (can't confirm myself, didn't see him play). I personally thought he played well for us when he was up last year...but he didn't get much leash at all...especially considering how well he played in Binghamton and he got sent back a second time.
Again, he's only 22 years old and he's gone through quite a bit as a professional hockey player already. I'd almost say it would be worth it to let him stay in Russia one more year before trying to figure out what kind of player he can become, and what he can do for the Ottawa organization.
