Consider Bykov is CSKA's coach - the whole line just might see some senior national team action. Alexander Nikulin is somewhat of a regular on the 4th line or in the pressbox, and Shirokov played a few pre-Olympics exhibition games last year on the 4th "kid" line... and if Bykov decides to have a young gun line like the first stage of the Eurotour and Krikunov last year; it would only make sense for Parshin to take Lemtyugov's place instead of someone like Shkotov on account of the already present chemistry.
I'm happy to hear he's doing fine, finally.
