That is all.
"For now" and "vastly" is completely WRONG. And for the "foreseeable future" the NHL will have to learn to adjust to another "best league in the world". Your position is wishful thinking.
Ovi, Makin, Datsyuk have come BEFORE there was a KHL. Jagr wanted to come back because he had his years in the KHL, he wasn't happy with the team any more and he didn't want to go to another KHL team. He had a chocie between NHL and home.
Kuz maybe doesn't want to be in the NHL because of this arrogant "NHL is beter, NA is better attitude" in NA. he's pretty comfortably at home where we don't consider the NHL a Mekka for hockey players. I personnally am so full of reading the name "Crosby" in any freaking article about Malkin. I will gladly see the fute generations of russian players play at home anf get the respect they deserve.
