I also see the point people are making about the KHL not being just a scrub league, but Zherdev played 421 NHL game, even his 1st year was 57. There situation is a little different with the 2.
Zherdev also was top3 in team scoring every year. I'm not bashing Lupul, but it's not like Zherdev ran from the team, and all this with attitude indicated by Lupul's own words...
