Ilya isn't doing so great in Phoenix. I understand that the Yote fans talk on the HF boards that Wayne Gretzky doesn't like his work ethic and towards the end of the season Ilya didn't help the Coyotes when they needed him. We weren't going to make the playoffs with Ilya anyway, so it's a moot point.
