In the studio today they just talked about that, Finns having 30+ players in the KHL, some who moved there from the NHL just to cash in some more $ like Niko Kapanen from the Stars for example back then. And that many of those 30 would play some kind of minutes def. in the NHL because they're just too good to SM-Liiga or some other.
