Not only no big loss, but actually a big plus in reducing that risk. Because when he goes to the KHL, he either he does well or he doesn't.

If he doesn't, we never spent a penny, and who cares. No loss.

If he does well, that raises confidence in his ability to play in the NHL, and we still have him forced into a rookie contract if he wants into the NHL.
