Found this interesting and thought I'd share. The KHL has basically been rigged for SKA St. Petersburg to win; they are allowed to spend 6x the salary cap, and the Russian Olympic team was pretty much SKA's roster. Refs fairly obviously called the first round of the playoffs in their favor.

There is absolutely no chance that the KHL is competitive with the NHL anytime soon.

Interesting-Putin sure has his hands in a lot of nefarious actions.

In the past Putin has stated that he would be very happy if Malkin and Ovechkin returned home to finish their professional careers in the KHL. Makes you wonder to what lengths he would go to make such happen.

I imagine he will be running facebook ads to turn the Pens fans against Malkin........it's as easy as that supposedly.
