Players leaving to KHL

The whole Nabokov thing is pretty unfortunate, but I think a lot of positive came out of that. I think players will probably think twice before moving over to the KHL from now on

I don't think it'll make much of a difference. Either players can sit around in free agency and do nothing with their lives or they can collect a paycheck in Russian while showcasing their game.

Unlikely. If you can't get what you want in the NHL, why not go get more in Russia? Much, much more!

What Nabokov thing you are talking about? He sucked in the KHL, not a big loss for SKA.

I am not quite sure how this is bad for him. Playing in a team that has no goal(and therefore no pressure) for a few months while getting paid some is not a terrible thing for sure. If he does well, he will sign with a better team in the off-season.
