Nobody with NHL contracts can stay in the KHL if the NHL season starts. That was possible in 2005, but not now. Both leagues are honoring each other's contracts these days. But if this season is cancelled Anisimov won't be back to the NHL for 2013-14 season - his contract expires in 2013. Right now he's playing for his hometown team, he's the best player there, and if he stays in Russia his chances to make the Olympics Russian team in 2014 would be increased.
Tyutin and Nikitin both lead their respective teams in ice-time per game. And Bob has won the starter job for SKA, wich is also could be a problem for the Jackets - Bob's contract expires in 2013 and he could stay in Russia as well as Anisimov.
The best KHL scorer is 2002 Blue Jackets' draft pick. Sergei Mozyakin has 48 points in 30 games and leads by a huge margin, Malkin is 2nd with 41 point in 28 games. But they're playing on the same line.
BTW Anisimov was named the best KHL forward in November.
