as to why, Leipold had to deal with Radulov, doubt he wants to chance it again
Nothing wrong with Russians, but why deal with the headache? And this has nothing to do with anything innate in Russians - it just has everything to do with geography and economics. KHL is the major competitor to the NHL. They can offer more money than any other league for star NHL players. More money, closer to home, it is logical that Russian players would think about the KHL.
