Sibir fired his dad about halfway through this last season.
They traded him to St. Pete for a 24 year old putting up worthless numbers in Russia's version of the AHL....considering that's all they got for maybe the best young player in the league, if I had to guess I'd think he's on his way to the Blues next season.
Obviously that's a guess on my part but there's just so many clues that point to him leaving the KHL this summer.
