The fact is that there are some good leagues outside of the NHL and players would rather play in a first league in Russia, Sweden, Finland, Slovakia, etc. than play in a second rate league like the AHL in North America. It's that simple.
not sure how this relates with Kuznetsov though, considering he would have never played in AHL and he dreamed to play in the NHL before being drafted..
