Just askin.

The thing here isn't that if you play in the KHL you will get a better chance of cracking it. It's not true.
Important thing that if you make a jump from KHL to NHL or vice versa, transition may take away your chances. For comparison, I think Voynov has a better chance of making it from LA than from KHL team, because transition is always a risk.
