As much as the KHL would love to keep these guys, I think the Sochi Olympics has as much if not more to do with suggestions they remain at home. You can't tell me guys like Ovie, Kovalchuk and Malkin aren't under subtle or even overt pressure to stay in Russia and be better prepared and acclimatized for the Games. Winning a gold in Sochi after going 0-for-4 in best-on-best Olympics so far is the only goal in Russian hockey right now.
