To be honest, everyone and everything looks slower on the big ice... NHL players (as a whole) are better than others not because of speed- everyone can skate fast- but cause of skills and comparing to KHL especially, cause of better two-way game....
That's probably the biggest difference between KHL and NHL- the speed would be the same, skill level too but the problem's KHL is full of lazy ***** who do not come back in their own zone fast and guys like Zaripov who openly admits he's afraid of any physical contact... When I see a KHL guy 1.82 and weight 78 kg who makes all those cool moves it's immediately clear that the guy would have no chance in NHL where he'd be massacred. Some say cause it's big ice it doesn't matter but I still think it kinda matters, if not on the boards then in front of the net surely...
