KHL numbers

Kosov- 2 goals 1 assist
shalunov-not in the K
sigarev 0 goals 0 assists
slepyshev 3 goals 0 assists
Khokhlachev 2 goals 3 assists
nichushkin 1 game 0 g 0 a
tkachev 0 goals 0 assists
kapustin-no in the K

like theres some examples of zlobins "serious khl competition" you cant honestly tell me zlobin wouldnt be able to put up those "numbers" in the K right now. if anything hes better off in the Q actually playing actually finding his scoring touch.
for what it's worth:

- iirc, Zlobin was actually bad in the 2 Summer Series games played in Russia, which coincidentally were the only games played on the larger surface (the one used at the WJC) among the ones you mentioned.

- Nichushkin has 2 KHL assists so far.

Generally speaking, those stats are heavily afftected by the little icetime these guys get in the KHL. I don't think Zlobin would be playing KHL hockey if he were in Russia right now, probably MHL, or VHL maybe.
Anyway, agree that those stats don't make the guys from KHL automatically better, just like Zlobin's CHL numbers don't make him better.
People are probably looking more at the level of play they showcased.
