Goaltenders stay in KHL (MHL) or go to AHL (CHL)?

Interesting, although it might be different for goalies to come to the CHL/AHL than for players. For goalies there may be more quality in goalie coaches at the junior level. Also I think there is less of a transition for goalies than players (I remember Robert Esche saying he had to change his game but was not too difficult).
You can maybe add Saiko, Kostenko to the list and Pechurski who played games in the central hockey league all the way to NHL. p.s. Kostenko really got the shaft, must have stupid agent who got him drafted/to go to NA. Has yet played only 1 game so far this year, should have stayed in Russia.
