Like I already stated, if politics were prevalent, NHLers would stay away.....just like they did in the 1990s.
Remember Malkin's mistreatment and 'defection to the NHL'....well he was back in Moscow playing for the NT the minute the Penguins' season ended. I wonder why?...oh, that's right, the FHR is different from the domestic league and both have different agendas.
I already explained in this post, and is why there are many conflcting statements and opinions of the 'higher ups' in Russian hockey.
But of course we should lump everybody together and call it one big 'conspiracy theory'...right?
Most of our behaviors are politically motivated. It is just how we are. Just look at our "political" selves outside of the context of what our culture usually refers to as "politics".
Think about various "political" scenarios in the workplace and you can start to see that just about everything we do is intrinsically political.
I'm not saying that you are wrong, but offering a perspective that hasn't yet been offered in this thread.
