KHL teams want to keep Ovechkin, Kovalchuk rather than return 'em to NHL?

And at the same time, you are arguing to eliminate those types of deals because they discriminate against teams like Nashville?
I'm not arguing anything of the sort. I was merely replying to your idea, which I already said likely wouldn't even work at all. You were saying all contracts over this hypothetical 5 year cap should be nullified, and the players should be UFAs. That would screw some teams over when they weren't the teams who actually negotiated the terms of the deals. It won't work. It's not a good idea.
