Last lockout the same was shown by Lecavalier, Brad Richards who were about subpar in the old Superleague. KHL is a tough league to play.
Well Thoresen was also a mediocre NHLr, but he didnt have any problem scoring in the KHL. I think its just about being used to the big ice, a strong mind etc. Not about skill.
