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.
Don't forget kieth jones (secret enemy to Russian players) and Healy who said "this is what the KHL does do you want to send your guys to that country for the olympics? " -referring to the fighting ref incident
