I think it has more to do with the rules that the KHL put in place regarding who can come over and play. Each team is allowed to take 3 NHL players, but two have to be Russian. That leaves one spot per team for a NA or Euro player.
And then there is an entire list of other rules regarding who can play. Have to have played a certain amount of NHL games. Have to have experience on a national team or have won a Stanley Cup, etc... IOW, no scrubs.
