Pavel wants to travel in a modern aircraft that has a 99.99999% chance of not crashing.
Sorry but this is not funny. I know what you are trying to say but what happened is still horrible and one can only pray, that the KHL has improved in that regard.
Pasha just being Pasha once again, to be honest I wouldn't have hold it against him if he decided to stay in the KHL but I am obviously happy that he decided to return and signed an extension.
Also I think some people are really underestimating the playing at home factors in front of the 3-fs, especially if you are already extremely rich. Imagine yourself in a situation thousands of miles away from him, already having tons of cash and almost a guaranteed workstoppage every 4 - 5 years reducing your rights/salary - wouldn't it be extremely tempting to just go home and enjoy playing in front of the former mentioned 3-fs?
Winning the Stanley Cup may be the ultimate goal for almost every NA born player but I think a lot of europeans are just happy with playing some years in the NHL and see where it goes. From a purely competitive standpoint though I agree, the NHL is by far the best league.
