Why should they send their leader away before the playoffs?
Also, Kuzya has repeatedly said that he felt obliged to play for his home team a bit more. We never know the truth, but he wouldn't stay in that great city of Chelyabinsk if he didn't love Traktor.

Also, this escaped my mind - is there no longer a restriction for players coming from Europe mid-season under the new CBA or what?
