In the AHL, you make $50-100k a year, minus taxes, so you are spending every last penny you earn. In the KHL, you can make $1-2 million tax-free, so after 10 years, you can have more money than you can ever spend, living a great lifestyle. How's that even a choice?
I don't know what you do for a living, but are you telling me that if you could make more in the next 12 months working in Russia than you could working in the US for the next 12 years, you wouldn't do it?
