With the Rosno Cup beeing played in Russia at the moment one thing has become clear. The russians are trying really hard to challenge the NHL. There have been allot of talk in Russia about building a really strong Super Leauge, Fetisov has become a powerful person in russian politics and there doesnÂ´t seems to be any shortage of cash since virutally all extremly rich oligarchs own or is involved in hockey clubs. One of the affects with this would be that Alexander Ovechkin, and maybe even Kovalchuk probably wonÂ´t leave for the NHL once the season starts. With Bettmans offer all the caps could offer Ovechkin would be 850K a year for his first four years. While in Russia Ovechkin could earn as much as 2-3 million a year. Russia also have a income tax at 13%, while USA has what 30%?
