It was sad that the 90's almost cost Russia a generation of hockey players. Luckily for them, while others may have wanted to emigrate as well, the hockey players had a marketable skill that could command a great paycheck! Even the powerful CSKA had a hard time meeting payroll commitments in the '90's.
