Mutual release of contract two days after he signs a KHL deal sounds to me like they told him he wasn't making the Bears and let him go get a deal before they waived him. He's not pulling a Radulov.
The Russian factor is also signing a contract back in Russia to apply pressure to your NA club for more money/one-way contracts.

It's not just one thing. To me anyway.
