Hudler actually accepted arbitration which kept his rights with Detroit. After the chaos that caused, I don't believe an agent will allow his player to accept arbitration again if they wanted to sign with the KHL.

Matt Ellison would be a better example. He went to the KHL as an RFA last summer and is scheduled to become a UFA this summer...
