Radulov bolting to the KHL shouldn't be much of a surprise...

he can make more money there than with any NHL team
Russian government/sponsors are ready/willing to spend to get the top russian hockey talent living and playing in russia ahead of sochi 2014. Endorsement opportunities alone could very well top whatever he makes with any teams.

not only is he going where the money is, but he's also going to be a hero over there, and don't think that many of the canadian/U.S stars in the NHL are every bit as aware/concerned about their hero status in the north american markets... elite sports breeds that kind of egotism.

2014-2015 season, I bet a bunch of talented players from Russia will be finding their way back into the NHL
