Honestly people want to downplay the Russian factor, but realistically as long as there is a very popular league that pays handsomely right in their backyards, I don't see why it shouldn't be considered a concern.

Ilya Kovalchuk was a successful NHL star and he still ran off.

Yes, I think as situations like this arise around unhappy Russian players rumors will get started, but honestly even if they are just rumors do you really want to risk losing assets on a player that is a candidate for leaving the NHL?

I don't. Sorry, no thanks.
