Thoughts on the Vitali Kravtsov situation

Vitali Kravtsov has been in the news a lot lately. After opting to return to the KHL this season, Kravtsov has had a rough go of it. He played 11 games with Chelyabinsk, putting up 2-1-3. That looks bad, but the team is downright atrocious (-30 goal differential, last place) and is run poorly. Think the KHL version’s of the Knicks. Kravtsov was then demoted to the VHL. There was a lot of overreacting on Sunday. I wanted to let this settle before addressing it.

1. People are using the VHL demotion and the return to the KHL to state that Kravtsov has attitude issues.
