Its the young stars that its an issue for. Malkin took a SERIOUS pay cut to come to the NHL. The super league has no restriction for rookies, so while Malkin makes the rookie minimum here in North America, he could be making 5 or 6 times as much playing at home. Also, you guys are forgetting some of the young guys who have stayed in Russia, like Korolyuk and Perezhogin, who both looked promising before they left for Russia.
