I know it's easy to get blinded by all those zeroes, but a lot of kids dream about raising the Stanley Cup growing up. That's something the NHL will always have over the KHL.
by terms i mean playing role as well.
Cervenka had a peek, maybe he liked what he saw, maybe not, but then came SKA waving zeroes and he said yes.
i honestly think it never goes down to this, or i at least hope so; but imagine that KHL continues its European expansion, that it gets to have a strong team in every relevant country, that the players are content and making an awful lot of money. could it be so that a young star might start weighing his options?
