KHL is still a joke of a league. Some lowlights include a coach fired mid-game, terrible players (nhl scrubs become KHL all-stars) and a god awful safety record.

According to reports, the medical staff for Dinamo responded immediately and was on the ice, but emergency personnel at the Moscow Spartak rink were apparently sitting in the stands and had to be called using the public address system. They took several minutes to arrive at the scene.

It has also been reported that instead of being taken off the ice on a stretcher, Kariya was carted off by trainers and teammates on a soft tarp and that he was taken off the rink through a narrow entrance at the Dinamo bench.
And of course,
It was later disclosed that Cherepanov had suffered a heart condition that had gone undetected by the Avangard medical staff, but it was also learned that the ambulance that was supposed to be at the rink had already left and had to be called back and did not arrive until 12 minutes after Cherepanov had collapsed. The battery in the defibrillator at the rink had drained and it took 20 minutes to get Cherepanov to a local hospital.
More stuff: a team didn't compete last year due to financial reasons, and he KHL decided that as a result of the game between Vityaz Chekhov and Avangard Omsk on 9 January 2010 wouldn't count due to a mass brawl which left neither team having the required number of players to continue, the game would count as a 5-0 defeat for both teams with no points being awarded.
