First rule of KHL: we do not talk about salaries.

Stop that prejudicesd BS. The salaries are not disclosed because of the players union which under russian law has the right to block salaries disclosure. The league itself has nothing to do with it.

In every post you react so strongly whenever someone post that in KHL things are not so great and shiny.

And btw, players union is not part of the league then?

Usually in Europe salaries are not made public in any sports. Media has to estimate who really earns what sum of money. That is not even a Russian-based thing. That happens also in Germany.

Plain and simple: no, the player's union is not part of the league.

P.S. I wonder how you understand the lockout negotiations in NA if a player's union is a part of the league.

Players union represents players who play in league, but union itself is not part of KHL? If KHL owners don`t run the union, it doesn't mean that union is not part of the league.

Yeah, and really, KHL would be so happy to open salaries to public view, what a shame that union doesn't allow them to do that.

Maybe you are toooo old to understand such a simple thing?
A union is never part of the league by definition. Otherwise it's no union.

Ohh, so now we believe in everything Medvedev said?

"From the start, league aimed to make all team budgets and salaries open, and how about that, 5 years later, and we still do not know anything.

P.S Again, you really don`t understand what I meant by saying "part of the league".

Seriously, it was stated multiple times by KHL heads and Kovalenko (head of the union) that the league is willing to publish salaries, but can't do so. The reason was already explained by Atas in a pretty understandable way.

I know all of that. I`am not arguing about the reason.

Am I not allowed to think that they just saying that, but actually they don`t mean it? I think league will only lose, if entire world would see how much guys like Radulov gets paid.

Is it such a crime to think that way...

The cap is 1.2 billion rubles. Which is 37-38 million dollars. So you may figure out. But yeah, you won't find other figures.

Oh yeah, conspiracy, bribery, corruption. I can't force myself to remember about those things.

So, if we started to talk about salaries and money, i have some thoughts about that, hope no one will became mad.

I wanna talk about Kuznya. In all resources and articles, I always hear one thing - Kuznya have money problems, they are one of the poorest clubs in the league. (Today at KHL show "league P.S" Gimaev said that again).

But i look at their roster, Brent Sopel!!, guys who before signing with Kuznya, played 70 game NHL season, all prev season was NHL regular.

Randy Robitaille, guy who year before, he was signed, was scoring leader!!! of NLA.

Maybe i can added more guys too that list. Simon had pretty solid season with Vitjaz/Dmsk.

So is it about those guys age? (Soples was 33 when he signed, Robitalle 35, Simon 38.) That why their are so cheap?

Or maybe they just saving on Russian players? To be fair, i just looked down on their roster, and the guys who I know are, both goalkeepers, Bumagin and Slepyshev.

So that is Kuznya`s secret? Sign good, but little old foreigners, but save on Russians players by adding lots of youngsters to the team?

Again, for very impressionable people. I`am not trying to build some conspiracy sht here. Just trying to get acquainted with Kuznya`s situation.

Yes.

Not only foreigners though, I believe some of their Russian top-6 forwards are quite expensive too but in general that's their secret - spend the money on guys worth spending on and fill out the roster with young or for some other reason cheap players.
