All belonged to best players of national leagues last season. You have to know that there is limited space for non-russians in KHL, not everybody can play here
You mentioned in your previous post that all the best players in Europe go to KHL, I gave you an example proving otherwise. With that list of players you did not prove me wrong. That is a bunch of pretty good hockey players, but still, there are loads of better hockey players than that playing in every top European hockey league.
IMHO the best option for Zaborsky would be taking a two way deal (if and probably when a one way contract isn't being offered) in the NHL. He realizes he's on a completely different level than he was back when he played with the Rangers system. If he can't hack it and gets stuck in the AHL then come back to Europe.
