REL (Russian Elite League) Threat to NHL

from TSN,
NHL agent Mark Gandler says he expects a number of players to sign with teams in the Russian Elite League this season. Gandler, who represents a number of Russian-born clients, says a combination of the new collective bargaining agreement and improved financial picture of top Russian teams could have players thinking twice about playing in the NHL. "There's no question this is the biggest threat from outside the NHL has ever had," Gandler tells the Palm Beach Post.
