Nichuskin can move only if he pays money to Traktor, what he will not do. Traktor is not CSKA to release him (Kucherov case).
I think that kids from moscow clubs think that they are superstars at 16, therefore they give up and move to CHL. Kids from Ural, Sibir are another type of players, another mentality.
You're right. You have to look at the specific club too. CSKA is a farm with open gates and they don't keep or take care of their prospects. Traktor is a whole different story lately.
