The Labor Dispute and the KHL
Is it the NHL's goal to drive players away forever? The KHL is going to start seeing a lot more Russian players stay home rather than go to the NHL where their friends, family, and agents back in the Motherland are going to tell them they will get f***ed by the league. In Russia, there is big money to be made playing hockey and that's what they're going to hear. I wouldn't be surprised if other European kids decide to stop bothering with the d-bag NHL ownership and also emigrate to the KHL instead, especially now that it has expanded into more parts of Europe. Hell, before long it wouldn't surprise me to see some American and Canadian kids go there for the promise of big money and no labor disputes rather than stay in North America with this joke of a league.
