Will this issue be addressed or will the NHL have to set up a system for buying out those rights?
All KHL / Transfer Fee reports I've read have concerned Russian players under contract (or allegedly under contract as the KHL claims all RSL contracts transferred, even if the player, like Filatov, did not sign a KHL contract). I've seen no indication of the KHL trying to retain rights or demand transfer fees for players whose contracts are expired.
