My guess is that there are certain agreements laid down in the begging of a loan such as this player will play here for this amount of time, but l don't know if that holds up this long now that he has switched leagues, teams, signed a pro contract in Europe. We still hold his NHL rights because Yzerman made a qualifying offer but the loan may be over since he never re-signed.
Since there was no transfer agreement fully agreed upon between the NHL and euro clubs, contract status is frozen. Thats why Radulov is still on his ELC when he came back to Nashville.

At least, thats how I remember it.
