I hate that it's under these circumstances with Alfie being injured, but I am so so happy that Filatov's gonna get another chance. I really think he can do a lot for this team. His play reminds me a lot of Vermette for some reason
Everyone else has said it so well, but it bears repeating. Filatov up is not only well deserved, but overdue. Hope he proves his work ethic. At the same time, the fact that it came at the expense of Alfie sours this callup a bit. Hope the captain recovers quickly and not at Filatov's expense.
