That would be true, if this article was the only evidence on Russia trying to keep its young players in Russia. There's still the Malkin situation, the fact that Cherepanov is staying in Russia despite the Rangers' attempts to bring him over, the widespread anxiety among NHL GMs concerning Russians at the draft, and everything that's been said around the rejection of the IIHF transfer agreement and the formation of the KHL. Even if this article is complete BS, there is plenty of evidence suggesting that Russia is tired of having its best players play overseas.
