I was wondering... besides European NHLers that go back and play for KHL, are North American players that go to the KHL treated as stars or as, I don't know, lesser players because they aren't Russian I guess. I know this isn't the best way to word this, but this is a very honest question, I am just wondering if there are problems with language barriers and if Russian or European teammates treat their North American teammates with respect or are somewhat bitter...?

It depends on the player. As is with any player, they have to earn the love of the fans.

Depends. If there good and bring use to the team, yes. Russians actually like foreign stuff and like to travel so they would probably get along especially if the NA player is a little outgoing.

That being said, peolpe hate Verot, Simon, Sugden, and that Canadian gang.

Im sure if someone like Parise or Crosby was on a KHL team, they would have star status and people would like them alot.
