That's certainly true but you would have to assume that a star like Kovy or Ovechkin would have a contract paid directly by Gazprom rather than the team itself. Medvedev wouldn't want to be embarrassed by having a high profile player not get paid. But, you are right, the league is retardedly set-up. They will never be able to draw Swedish or Finnish or German teams into the KHL until the Russians stop running the league like it's their own personal inferiority complex therapy.
