Obviously, they have a lot of money and even prior to signing Fedotenko and Ponikarovsky they had 6 bonafide KHL scoring wingers (Dadonov, Kaspar, Nedorost, Pettersson, Kiiskinen, Tuppurainen) and only 1 top-6 center (Wirtanen) to go with them. Furthemore, Wirtanen is more useful in checking role and he was never going to be a major offensive threat. What was the logic behind signing those guys?
It's a complety new franchise. What do you expect them to jell into a team in a couple of weeks? They need time. Their roster is btw not that impressive. That's exactly what I expected from them. And tehy have lost some close games too. They will get better.
Just wait and see how the other newcomers will be trickling down the standings once they play the heavyweights.
