We own his NHL rights still, so if he wants to sign in the NHL, it has to be with us. As to why he would sign in the NHL, first, I think there's a greater degree of stability in this league (how many KHL players have simply had their contracts terminated at this point), and second, if he becomes successful in the NHL (ie: legitimate top-6 forward), there's a greater income potential than if he continues in the KHL (of course, if he remains a fringe NHLer, he's probably going to earn more in the KHL).
