Somehow I think that Khomutov especially would not have been very comfortable in the NHL, although playing with familiar players/countrymen obviously would have helped.

In case anyone has missed, there was a little discussion on the Russia forum about Bykov & Khomutov and the NHL http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1233009
