I did exaggerate a little and apologies for it. Zucc will definitely not get 30% in his pocket of what he makes in the KHL. You can't complain on living in Russia if you are a multi dollar millionere.

It's ridiculous to expect to be able to beat him up in arbitration. The NHL financially has become a by a wide margin b-tier league to the KHL.

Nice work Bettman!
Average attendance for KHL games is about 6,000.

The Islanders attendance last season - last in the NHL, mind you - was over 13,000.

I could go on and on about this, but Ill just simply suggest that you stop trying to push this narrative that the KHL is some sort of financial beacon that the NHL should emulate, because its absurdly wrong.
