He can't support his lavish lifestyle on principled righteousness. He knows it, they know it, he knows they know it, and they know he knows they know it.
That being said, imagine for a second the contract that the KHL would give Ovechkin. He could make more playing there and he knows it, they know it, and he knows they know it.
