NHL RFA players can go to the KHL. Drafted players can go to the KHL. Fetisov wants all Russians to have to stay in Russia until they're 28, not just be bound to their contracts.
No, he didn't say that. He said that all players, foreign or domestic should be subject to RFA rules before they are 27, so, and I quote, "Rich clubs can't buy up all the best players." He refers here to so called "oligarkh" clubs: SKA St Petersburg, Avangard Omsk, Ak Bars Kazan and some others. The letters NHL never crossed his lips in this interview.
