Although he would be "transfered" by Omsk, he would still need to sign an NHL contract to play in the league, which at that point if he played for Omsk at any time that season he would be subject to waivers.
Which is why EDM had a $7 Million salary waiting for him, knowing that would deter any of the team ahead of them in waiver priority to pass on him.
