Personally I wanted Khokhlachev back in Windsor this year. The KHL is such a different style of hockey I would have preferred him staying in North America and being a dominant junior. He has got a lot better since coming back from the Subway Series with a renewed confidence, five points in seven games after two points in 19 games before. As long as he continues to get consistent ice time (which he should, his father is the GM) and doesn't let the fact he's not gonna put up huge numbers playing on a terrible offensive team in a very low scoring league get his confidence down I'm fine with a year of the KHL and he should learn a thing or to from that level of play. He also shows no intentions of sticking in Russia as he's already signed an NHL contract and I'm pretty sure would have played in the AHL if he could this year (only went to Russia because he felt he was done with the OHL).
Thanks for your input, much appreciated Didn't realize his father was the GM, that explains the trip back home then.

Collberg with Lindholm should be very productive.
Collberg/Lindholm If that line stays together into the round robin, I'm going to mail poisonous spiders to TSN for not showing any Sweden games.
