And why are you talking about "afford" do you think all other European teams can afford all those NHL players? Swiss teams, SM-liga, they definitely don`t have more money then Riga.

A lot of NHL players would play in Europe just for practice and stay in shape purposes. I think they all know that contract as they have in NHL, can afford to pay only some KHL teams, who already have they rosters full, and i think if they want to fill that with non-russsian NHL player, no offence to Perry and Koivu, there are not even best players in their team, they will sign some Stamkos/Giroux/Getzalf calibre players.
Perry isn't the best player on his team? He's a former MVP and last year he lead his team on goals. Getzlaf, on the other hand, had only 11 goals.
