and I heard rumour that since new season Champion of Russia will be determined by results after regular season, not play-off. So, best russian team after regulars becomes russian champion. Nothing official, only rumour.

The problem with "international" is in IIHF rules. FHR delegated its right to organise russian league to KHL. It works like this in Europe, dont know what basics NHL has. Btw, KHL considered to be independent from FHR/IIHF, we will see what happens after Sochi.
