For a Canadian player, it is a terrible place compared to playing in NHL. The player conditions are worse and living in a country where you don't speak the language basically sucks.
The KHL is only an option for players that can't find a job in the NHL. That's the case for Swedes and Finns too. Only some Russians and Czechs may have it as their preferred place to play hockey.
