Last year the Caps had to wait to sign Orlov until March, to keep the contract from counting during that season. Was that only because his KHL season was done already, or is that something that would always apply because of the lack of transfer agreement?

Basically what I'm getting at it, even if Kuznetsov was ready to sign a contract today and guarantee that he'd come over next season, could he? Because if those rumors are true and they've already basically got a deal worked out, this may be the reason nothing becomes official for quite some time. But I don't know the intricacies of the KHL-NHL relationship enough...
