I don't by it, let these men of weak character run home, continue to draft Russians and surround them with people who can show them what good character is.
Pavel Datsyuk has been speaking profusely last week about how much he would like to play in his hometown Ekaterinburg. Sergei Zubov actually ended his career playing in KHL. additionally all these players are dating back to times when even a wealthy man would find Russia a pretty unpleasant place to live; the younger guys are much different.

i may be overreacting, but i predicted the eventual defection of Kovalchuk when the debacle of him wanting to stay was rolling out after lockout ended; time showed that i was correct.
