Why not build a new Russian five about those greatest KHL Russians, that haven't seen the NHL? Ilya Nikulin is the best defenceman out of NHL at the moment. He's their National Captain in latest tournaments even with the greatest NHL star power there. Nikulin is just great overall defenceman. Shoots, passes, skates well, defends well, big. Also Sergei Mozyakin has been the best scorer in short KHL history, just a Brett Hull type right handed sniper, scores from anywhere with a great playmaker.

Mozyakin - Datsyuk - Radulov
Nikulin - Marchenko

Just get them here with the old way, money is the power. That community would keep Pavel here.
Radulov has long-term deal with CSKA. Mozyakin is not good on the small ice. Talented scorer, but way too soft. Nikulin would be good. But I'm not sure if he wishes to play in the NHL. I know that Atlanta tried for years to convince him to play in the NA. Marchenko is at least 2-3 years away from NHL.
