Horrible logic, Slovakia basically had the same amount of KHL Players at the last Olympics as Russia. In fact the Russia 2006 team had 8 RSL(KHL's predecessor) players and that did not stop them from making the SF.
Slovakia - 4th Place - 8 KHL Players + A player from the Slovak League
Russia - QF - 9 KHL Players
Russia at the 2006 Olympics had 8 local players
Russia - 4th Place - 8 RSL players (Won against Sweden, Canada, USA).
Maybe, just maybe it is not that much to do with picking players from the KHL but more to do with Russia having horrible team chemistry and weaker players?
I think Russia will miserably fail at the Olympics, getting a medal will be the equivalent to winning Gold.
