I don't know much about hockey but can anyone tell me about the Russian League. Will it be as high of quality as the NHL and will it take some players from the NHL?

Quality will not be as good but they tried to offer Malkin a big contract and I think he just wants to play in Pitt. Probably won't take any big names

Seems like every few years there is some upstart league out of Europe (usually Russia) that is going to bury the NHL. And every time it is nothing more than a couple of prospects and a couple of senior vets who go for it. As the good Count from Transylvania suggests, my guess is few if any will leave and it will be a minor league. Truthfully, if given the choice of living in Russia or living here, most will continue to stay here, even if it means living in Pittsburgh. :)
