Those top stars are a poor example, since they all established themselves as solid roster players in RSL/KHL - Kovy, Ovi, Malkin and Radulov are exceptional talents and don't represent an average player at all.
A lot of Russian fans and experts are trying to say exactly that- get established in KHL and ONLY THEN go to NHL for the best chance / roster spot on NHL team (Tarasenko, Orlov). And if you look at Russian NHLers who are solid locks in the lineup these days- most of them have done exactly that.
Only Burmistrov and Kulikov are solid yet relatively average players out of CHL.
You are like a broken record.
