You need to check your information.

The highest salary in the Russian League is $2 million?

Uh, no.

The Russian League can offer him a tax-free $4 million a season without blinking an eye.

And that, my friend, Bob Gainey can't even come close to matching. And he's exactly the kind of player they should be targeting, and they can make an offer that the NHL quite simply can't compete with.
