KHL Prez Medvedev to SportsDaily.ru: New CBA may be basis for terminating existing contracts, some players will stay.

NHL's opinion of itself is so high... OK, let them get drunk on their greatness. We'll see how many Euros look our way

Our league will act according to our own and international rules. If players decide to stay, we will help them.

And more Medvedev, who is winning the internet tonight: "There is no reason to fear (IIHF's sanctions against players who decide to stay)

"Some players asked their NHL teams to stay for the (KHL) All-Star Game, but were denied. The selfishness is understandable" - Medvedev

Yes, Kovalchuk is on the All-Star lineup in the KHL. 100% confirmed

Kovalchuk's KHL all-star apperance seems to be due to the CBA not being ratified yet, as the lockout is still offically happening.
