maybe some fringe players are there to compete and prove something, but that's rare.

i have seen tavares play 2 full games and he put the pick through his legs more than in his first three seasons in the NHL.

not saying they are slacking, but there is zero chance they are playing their hardest.
Oh, I was talking about KHL. There's now way in hell they'd get away with treating it like a vacation there, most of them get paid millions $$ too.

I don't know about DEL though, haven't watched any games. I'm sure it's a different story though, with vastly different circumstances.
