What should they do in response? They should not get in a pissing match with the KHL and end up looking bush-league, like they do every time they get in a negotiation. Nor should they get in a money battle with Russian oligarchs.

Personally the best I think they can do is to ensure there is a rule in place that does not allow a player's rights to lapse from the team that held them before that player went to any other league. They should recognize that the league is bigger than 1 or 100 players and that they would be better off focusing on continuing to improve the product on the ice.
