I am somewhere in-between you two on this.
What other nation in the world can offer such an enticement to its countrymen when it comes to professional hockey? What other country can really match what Russia and the KHL can offer as an alternative to the NHL, especially money-wise?
I would not avoid all Russian players, either in the draft or as NHL players, but I would spend time investigating what is most important to them, primarily do they want to make great money while playing hockey at the highest level, or do they prefer to make even more money while playing at just a high level.
