IMO its better for the Russians to stay in the KHL/VHL/MHL system. I mean if you have started developing in a certain way its better to become ready before leaving (like Ovechkin or Malkin did who both went to NA when they had played in the RSL already). I also think that the training in Russia is a lot better. In Europe you need to have good skills and skating abilities and players are trained to become better as individuals while in NA I often think they are just made a maybe-NHLer...

In the future I guess the Russian kids will look more closely what options what system gives them.
