All this talk about "doing what it takes to be a Red Wing" is silly.
We've got NHL-ready prospects dying on the vine in the AHL so that we can sign mediocre 3rd and 4th liners. If I am Tomas Tatar, for example, knowing that the chances of making Detroit his year are slim, and even next year are pretty slim... I might be looking for a KHL team right about now.
The KHL doesnt work like that "In Soviet Russia Hockey team picks you, you dont pick hockey team" look at great Buffalo Sabres Prospect Grigerenko; The KHL won't touch him because of some crazy KHL loyalty thing. If the KHL wants you there going to get you and there going to have everyone know that their coming after your player. ie Alex Semin, Alex Ovechkin, Ilya Kovalchuck, Alex Radulov (Radulov actually went to the K, Semin was offered HUGE money, Kovy and Ovy both offered somewhere like 12m a year)
