you can define high level. All I can compare it to is soccer. I know there was a difference in playing for a team where standings are important or a travel team compared to playing in a rec league to stay in some sort of shape.
The intensity isn't the same. But if you want to beleive the FEL2 is close to the same level as the KHL, go ahead.
Rads isn't opening his mouth for this guy. I've never questioned his talent. I question his attitude. I also said the KHL is overall a better league. What i did say is your downgrading Barkov and your attempt to word and spin things to make your view better is laughable.
