Evgeni Malkin and Sergei Gonchar have already practiced with their KHL team in Russia, Pavel Datsyuk, Jaromir Jagr and Jussi Jokinen are among the many who have as well signed contracts and I don’t blame them for a second. These European teams are ready to spend some cake, these NHL athletes are looking to make some its an easy equation. Go where the money is. The KHL is allowed to pay NHL players a maximum of 65 per cent of what they earn under their NHL contracts. These guys can go over to the KHL make millions without worrying about a stoppage, I could see a few of them having no desire to come back.
What do you think?
