Joel Kwiatkowski signed with the KHL and then signed with the Thrashers a few days later.
Yes, but Waddell said that he didn't know Kwiatkowski was under contract. I think they are negotiating the compensation..

There is a verbal agreement between the KHL and the NHL not to sign players that are under the contracts.

I don't think the Bolts will do it if Niittymaki signed a contract without NHL release clause.
