    Gotta go where the money is! NHL may be the highest rate hockey (talent wise) but he gets to win by being close to home in Russia, and make millions at the same time. I can't blame him, although: since The Kostitsyns, Radulov, and this guy... I never want my team to take a Russian high in the draft. They will bolt at the first sign of trouble. Glad they didn't take Nichushkin in the draft.

    That's the problem with playing such an international game. Kovalchuk will be a legend there.

    A medicore, arrogant POS player like Radulov can be a star there, and Kovalchuk is way better.

    Tax situation is better in Russia too. Russia has a flat tax.

    I hope you're joking. 14 percent of Russians are muslims. I'll assume you're joking.

    appx 20,000,000 of them.

    I guess that depends on what city you live in.

    some of their places are pretty densely populated. I know from experience. I saw Russia on a Mission impossible movie once.

    it might be cool to visit for a day or two. Don't think I'd want to live there. Could be worse places. Like the middle east, or Haiti, or Miami.

    Well, Russia has always had large Muslim populations thanks to Russian empire conquest of Muslim peoples like the Tatars, Ossentians, Chechnians, and various Turkic groups. Most Muslims are in the Caucuses, Kazan and Tartarstan.
