Is this common in Russian news in general?

Are KHL (or any) contracts actually denominated in non-Ruble currencies?

Not being argumentative, I'm just curious. Спасибо.
There is major factor. The KHL contracts aren't published like in the NHL and it's the player's union blocking it. So we basically have no idea which clauses they have regarding currencies or even the amounts. (that said the 2,5 mil can be only a rumor)Therefore NHL contracts are commonly used as a measuring stick. we're still in the dark about the real amounts in the KHL though. Yes, I'd say it's common for mention of sports contracts in general in the russian media.
