I see his contract ended this year with his KHL side and I feel he made big improvements in his game and had a good post season to. I'm hoping the Wings offer him a 2way deal with the Griffins for next year. Looking at a recent interview with him that was his target and then to fight for a place during camp. He could be a good 4th line role player with Nosek and add some much needed size to our checking line. He has dropped the gloves but is not a renowned fighter. But at 6'5" and 230lb he would be a deterrent to most opposing agitators.

why come here and play in the minors when he can make more money in the KHL and be in his own country?

Originally i would say ambition DD, but as you point out money seems the big factor these days. He's an intriguing prospect for sure and if I'm honest I think he'll be a casualty of the 50 contract issue. It would be a shame not too get a look at him either in camp or in the minors.

If he could come over and make an NHL team, I think he might do it.  But if he's not good enough, or if he'd just be a bit player, most guys would rather be a top end player at home than a 3rd liner in the NHL.  That's pretty much across the board for Europeans, which is why you don't see many Miller/Glendening level Russians or Swedes or whatever.  I don't really blame them, either.
