Wuh-oh, the Ruble is apparently tanking hard right now, hurting players where it hurts the most:

I think Mirtle said that some players have lost upwards of 35% of their contract value as a result of this. Wow.

I'm discussing this with him. He said that the value of the contract is in USD. If that's the case, then their pay in rubles should be adjusted accordingly to be equal to the USD contract value.

If their contract value is written in rubles, then yeah. They're fucked. Even if their contract was written in USD, I'm sure the KHL is looking for a way out of that, that's for fucking sure.

If the contracts are written in USD to keep the value equal to, or higher than NHL contracts, and the ruble is dropping that much the KHL is going to go bankrupt in a hurry.

A couple of people replied on reddit saying that the contracts themselves are in rubles, not just the pay.

That's good for the KHL at least. But it still might cause players to try & jump ship back to the NHL.

Kovalchuk to the Devils (e4). :lol:
