Since there is no KHL version of CapGeek, this little tidbit might interest you.

The KHL posted this on Thursday. The details are interesting. Full disclosure. 

As part of its continuing policy of financial transparency, the Kontinental Hockey League has published the total payments made by each club to locked-out NHL players hired during the dispute. These payments were made in accordance with last September’s amendment to KHL Regulations governing the signing by KHL clubs of NHL players in the event of a lockout. Those NHL men who played for KHL clubs during the lockout delighted the fans with displays of supreme skill and talent, setting a standard for world class performance and maintaining this standard throughout the season.
