The money the KHL is offering these guys to stay over is ridiculous, and if it were me, with the option to make twice as much at 19 in the KHL - as I would at 25 in the NHL - I'm staying home every time.

The same doesn't apply to Nikita Zadorov, mainly because he's already playing in the OHL ... but, we don't really maintain a need for that type of player.
Thanks SL. Keep hearing so much about this draft and really start wondering about it.
