Anyone who is under the impression that the NHL players are taking a roster spot away from a KHL player should read this article: KHL’s guidelines for signing locked-out NHL players

Essentially, the KHL amended their rules to allow for the signing of locked-out NHL players. They don't count against the roster limit or the cap ... so the same 25 guys that were signed with the team still are, they're still getting paid. The only thing that potentially changes is their ice time.

As far as wanting to show up a NHL superstar ... if it's a personal/skill challenge or point of pride kind of thing, I doubt that the reason the superstar is there makes any difference.
