Most of it is the Russian factor.

If a player wants to play in NHL, its almost becoming a prerequisite that a player must 'prove his commitment' by playing in North america ASAP.
Look at Anton Slepyshev.. The kid is a 1st round talent but still has 2 years on his KHL contract, he wasn't even drafted.
