Meanwhile in Russia, Radulov is a healthy scratch for fighting with his coach. Turns out it's not a "Russian factor" with him, he's as much of a headache overseas as he is in the NHL.

I can't believe some of you wanted to trade Plekanec for this guy.

The overwhelming majority of Russian NHLers are already on their way back to honor their contracts. The two guys causing trouble right now are Kovalchuk, who was always money-obsessed, and Visnovsky, who isn't Russian or even close to being Russian. The problem is the KHL is causing trouble and using the new CBA as an excuse to try and get players to violate their NHL contracts to poach talent, and yes their focus will be on Russian players.
