A bit off topic, but I don't understand why everybody keeps equating living in Russia to living in the depths of hell. The country has come a LONG way since it's financial collapse in 98, and living standards have significantly risen. While it makes a lot more sense for Russian/Czech/Slovakian players to bolt to the KHL for more money, I'm surprised younger NA players have decided against it, perhaps those who find themselves being bounced around between the NHL and AHL.
Atleast for a year or two, simply for the money and the crazy life experience. Playing for CSKA Moscow and being payed handsomely sounds nicer than AHL conditions. Seriously, Moscow/St.Petersburg >>>>>>>>>Any AHL city as far as living in goes.
