Well, the league(KHL) did the job well. None of the original 25 man rosters will be kicked off te team. Of course there are cases, especially like Selanne or Yashin in Russia(there are more of course I just named the notable ones) who were actually looking at the final year of a career and have trouble finding a job now. Lots of russian depth players too, who don't see a chance now. It is what it is for now. One of the two best leagues is off the board.
