The KHL might not *always* be able to offer him more money than the NHL. Coming over got him out of the commitment to Nashville, so whatever happens down the road, he will have more options available. It was basically a no-brainer to come back to the NHL for this little cameo.
Wouldn't his QO only be like 1.2 mil/year? They would be massively stupid not to qualify him. Give him a QO and trade him for the best offer.
