Maybe he'll find his game and maturity in the KHL. I wasnt sure where he fit in this year anyways on the Jets roster. This might make room for Scheifele to get more playing time with the Jets centering the 3rd line. The Jets still retain his NHL rights so if/when he comes back he either plays here or we can trade him.
Yes, there's definitely some positives to take from this situation. Some of our prospects (Scheifele, O'dell) will have an opportunity, also we have his right for another 6 years, meanwhile he is in the KHL developing without costing TNSE anything.
