No it's not. They are choosing to leave the most competitive hockey league in the World by their own selves because they can make a little more cash somewhere else. If they made more in the NHL, they wouldn't care about the KHL fans. It has nothing to do with being traded. But if that's what you want to believe, go right ahead man.

The man values his dignity, that doesn't mean he doesn't value the fans.
So, I guess we'll have to see if he follows through then.

If they appear the same then you're not thinking of money in terms of how it works. They're not the same. They're totally different.
Right, because that's what will happen at the end of their careers. They will only have made 25% of what they could have. Sure..
