KHL will rarely be able to poach stars/ very good players from NHL. However the rise of KHL will of course hurt the depth of NHL, and the level of overall talent in NHL will drop a bit. A earlier mentioned problem is that the quality of AHL is dropping, and that NHLs development league is getting worse is not a good thing. This is of course a problem for NHL but still a minor one.
There would be more reason to worrie if the canadian and american hockey programs was struggling, but this is certainly not the case they are pumping out quality prospects which makes the rise of KHL a lesser threat to the level of talent.
