I see a variety of possible scenarios, none of which I can say with any certainty is accurate.

If Koko wanted to play in the KHL and not the NHL, why not just stay in Russia? He could have done that; heck, wasn't he pressured to do that? Why come to North America, why say he wants to play in the NHL? Why bother?

Perhaps he sees a way to play for Spartak - which he has said he wanted to do some day - before his NHL career, rather than after. Perhaps he thinks the KHL is better for his development than the OHL at this point. Perhaps he wants to cash in for a couple of years before joining the Bruins. Perhaps he was lying through his teeth and has no interest in playing in the NHL. Perhaps he's being pressured by his parents. Right now, I have no idea at all, and neither does anyone else here.
