But then do you guys think that the it's that rosy in that league? That everybody are getting huge salaries playing for that league?
And if you want to reply that playing in the KHL is surely better salary wise than an entry level contract or playing in the AHL, well I can tell you that with or without the KHL, it was also better to play in the Russian League as well. And the Russian League existed prior to the KHL. They just didn't started to discover hockey down there...
Oh don't be so naive. The reason Russians started coming to the NHL to begin with was the almighty $$$. There is nothing wrong with that though, everybody loves and wants more money!
And no ****, the RSL existed prior to the KHL? Wow, you are brilliant. But its not just a coincidence that more and more NHL caliber players are siging in Russia all of a sudden, its because they can pay you comparable money to that of the NHL(especially since its tax free). Yes, money makes the world go round!
