    Interesting article.

    It seems like Filatov's shot at playing professional hockey in North America is gone, however. He was three years removed as a top five pick when he only fetched a third round pick, and he showed some potential. He failed as a Senator and fled the country. Since, he's been mediocre in the KHL, bouncing from team to team and not putting up good numbers.

    It sucks for him, but there's certain things you need to realize as a professional athlete before the ship sails. He had a lot of advice and help, yet chose to ignore professionals trying to help him make it. I don't feel bad for him at all.
