Hopefully, this extra time maturing and learning the game in the very challenging Russian league will give him the chance to do something of merit if/when he decides to come over.
If he comes over too late it's not even worth it. With his game he needs time in the AHL before he can stay in the NHL. He's not Joni Pitkanen or Radovan Somik.
