You're going to have guys going where the wages are, a lot of the time. A lot of players want to play in the best league in the world, but if you're European (And North American, in some cases) and haven't cut it in the NHL, getting decent wages in a career in the KHL is far superior to making 150k in the AHL.

There are some people who would be averse to living in Russia, and if you're North American its a long way from home, but that number is less than for the people who realize they can have a hockey life earnings of 1 million or 15 million.
