It's nice to see that ESPN is broadcasting KHL games since the NHL lockout is in effect. I even noticed that they are being broadcasted twice, in daytime (due to the time change) and later in a more prime time slot. I have also noticed that they have only been showing games with elite NHL players playing (Ovechkin, Chara, etc.).

Has anyone else watched these games and if so what did you think of the quality of hockey compared to the NHL? I thought it was slower and less physical but there are definitely some very skilled players, I wonder why they never made it to North America.
