As you likely have heard by now, Nikita Filatov was sent down to Binghamton yesterday afternoon. Peter wrote his reaction to a move that shocked almost everyone, and disappointed many including me. I feel it was a pretty bad move by the club after promising him he would get every chance at a top six spot. He may very well get it again, but sending him down this quickly is not the right way to go about things. While I would love Mika Zibanejad to score a goal before he is sent back, wouldn't it make more sense to send Zibanejad back and play the guy who is actually going to play here this year?
This is a great story by Silver Nuggets, and it is good to see that Filatov is taking this move better than he did in Columbus.
