I do find it interesting that outside of Kostitsyn (more of a just would like to spend the rest of the season comment anyway) that not many other guys have weighed in on this. You have the big two (Kovalchuk and Ovechkin) with lifetime contracts saying things. The Datsyuk and Semin and other Russians that would have to live up to this rather than say they are held hostage by the NHL after this aren't saying too much.

This is becoming a PR stunt for me. One that Kovy and Ovie can use to sell at home about how much they really care about the KHL and home. They know they cannot live up to it. Problem is they are about to find out when they return stateside it is really turning against them. For all the backslapping they get from KHL guys in high positions and the local media and probably even Fehr. It isn't doing much good for the fan-bases and NHL fans they will be contractually obligated to play in front of for the next decade.
