A better alternative would be that the youth team could receive a certain percentage of player's salary, say if a player signs 3 million per season contract, his club gets 200 000 USD from it, if the player earns 9 million per season, the club gets 600 000 USD... If a player has a long carreer in NHL, the club will get these 10 millions eventually and the league/ player could agree on something like that... not on paying 10 millions or even some 3 millions already, on the spot after the player had left...
There is no prospect of any kind of transfer agreement for the foreseeable future. Why should the NHL agree to anything when they get Russian talent for nothing now? The KHL doesn't want a transfer agreement, because they want Russian talent to stay home. The Russian consumers who buy the goods and services sold by the oligarch owners of KHL teams will pay for the riches that will go into NHL pockets for the likes of Ovechkin, Malkin, Datsyuk, etc.
