    Sort of a well duh moment. Russian teams got nowhere with their lawsuits and lost some of their best players for nothing. Better to get something than nothing. And good for the NHL as well because the cloak and dagger games help nobody in the long run. The set fee of $200,000 minimum (if it remains that) also helps Russia in that only players with real shots will get that thrown at them. So most players will remain in Russia.
