Not worried about the KHL at all.
A few years ago, when Radulov defected, there was some big concern about what the KHL would mean to the NHL, since then, alot of their teams have faced financial difficulty and one long time staple of Russian Hockey went out of business totally (Moscow Dynamo)
They are no threat to the NHL where players from all over the world strive to play. Yes, you are going to have the odd player like a Radulov or an over the hill Jagr wanting to play there, but the VAST majority of younger players from ALL OVER THE WORLD will still strive to be an NHL player.
Am I worried, that marginal players and old men want to go there to cash in (as that is the ONLY REAL DRAW) no as that will ensure that the guys that should be in the NHL are in the NHL while the marginal/old guys cash a paycheck.
