Those kind of connections or supposed bonds are overrated. Why isn't every good swedish player signing in detroit for league minimum? Players go where the money is or where they want to play. Not a lot will have an influence on that criteria otherwise. Except having a good team, and cap space.
As for prospects, this organization is already not afraid of drafting Russians, and I doubt any of them will be fleeing like they have done to smaller market teams recently. And for those players, I don't think having other russians around would have stopped them from doing so.
