Filatov does not consider Tarasenko’s departure for Detroit unexpected

Former Russian youth team striker Nikita Filatov said that for him the transfer of the attacker Vladimir Tarasenko Since Florida Panthers V Detroit Red Wings was not a surprise.

Earlier it became known that Tarasenko signed a two-year contract with Detroit.

— I wouldn’t say it’s some kind of surprise. The deal is pretty good and worthy for Volodya. Two years, $4.75 million per season is a good amount of money. Detroit will be able to play in the playoffs next year. It would be wrong to talk about more high-profile tasks.

Looking at Volodya’s last few seasons, it’s hard to guarantee that he won’t start the playoffs with a new team. That’s not a bad mark for him. He was a big part of Florida’s victory. Tarasenko was originally one of the best scorers in the NHL, but now he’s a useful two-way player. He can either play on the first line as a sniper or play an important role on the third line, adding depth to the lineup. That’s how it went for most of the playoffs in Florida,” Filatov told RB Sport.

Last season, Tarasenko, 32, won the Stanley Cup with Florida.
