But theres many reasons he might not want to go there
1) Little brother
2) RSL teams are a joke(it might change with the new league), they offer big contracts to lure players back, but they are just that, a lure. You don't build a career with a lure. Andrei might win over 10m in the NHL at 30 years old.(7 years of cap growth means franchise players around 15m in 2015) I'm sure his agent know that. He might not be an hab at that point, paying similar income tax.
3) Health reasons, even if you are rich in Russia, the best care is over here. Pretty darn important for an epileptic.
