I think HFboard subforums give you the wrong impression. KHL gets decent coverage in NA, expecially when it comes to Canadian related things. Its not a negative view with the average Canadian fan at all, just lack of information. Obviously there are Don Cherry types, but what people say on these boards is not representative of anything. I havent heard a negative thing yet from any major Canadian analyst about the KHL.(guys like McKenzie, Dreger etc.)
The KHL has its own ecosystem and people respect that for the most part. There are no hard feelings, and when guys like Giroux sign with KHL teams people understand. Its nice to see hockey expand as a sport in general.
