    At least he'll actually get playing time and a decent salary. Should've made the NHL roster to start the season though, along with Chytil.

    It's unfortunate it's come to this, doesn't look great for either party but maybe it's for the best for Kravtsov.

    Perhaps not ideal, how the year has begun for him. But whatever, he’ll be here next year.

    Just another in a string of poor draft picks led by Gordie Clark. What else is new? He let the Islanders get Wahlstrom and Dobson who are both on the NHL team while he drafts a player who flees to the KHL at the first sign of adversity. This does not bode well for his future. You'd like to see him fight through struggles and get used to the game rather than just quit and go back to his comfort zone. We've seen this before from other European players too. Mikhail Grigorenko, Jesse Puljujarvi, and Nail Yakupov all went back to Europe after struggling out of the gate to the pro game in the NHL and haven't seen the NHL since. Val Nichushkin went there, came back, and hasn't scored a single goal in 62 games since then. Late firsts are when you gamble on these type of guys. With a top 10 pick you need to go with more of the sure thing as opposed to the player who has options outside of the NHL.

    So if the Rangers wanted to call him up in like say December, in the middle of the KHL season after he’s signed a contract, he can just leave?

    That’s interesting

    Did he really think he was coming over with a guarantee, year long spot on the team?

    Seems stupid to come over here and leave the first few weeks of the season b/c it didn't go your way.

    He obviously wasn't ready, but the way they treated him didn't exactly benefit anyone. Let him get his game on in the KHL and recall him after what hopefully is a strong season for him. One of my favorite prospects.

    I feel like this is a parody sandwiched between two legitimate points

    I just hope he doesn’t get the Ronning’s final year of juniors experience where he’s asked to shoulder the entire teams offense by cherry picking

    This is disappointing. Hopefully this doesn't mean there is a rift between he and the organization

    Not a fan of him running back to Russia after the slightest hint of adversity. If he'll get playing time and won't lose a year off of his ELC, whatever.

    he backtracked and said this is his 20 y.o. season, his contract does not slide.

    Is it not slightly concerning when other players such as Farabee are playing in the NHL and succeeding?
