The Jackets have almost confirmed the thought that Nikita Filatov was not fitting in with the system in Columbus, by loaning him to CSKA Moscow in the KHL, in order to give him the top line minutes he needs to become a better player. It is rather questionable as to whether or not he'll be a better player in general or a better player for the Blue Jackets with this move. Needless to say, his NHL fantasy value is now zero this year.
Well, I'm expecting Filatov to be dropped in the Draft and now he should be dropped in the Sheet pool, by those two teams that still have him and now should be dropped or sat in any other pool out there. It's pretty straight-forward.
