He's not the only one with such a clause (some have 100K euro as the sum)and certainly won't be the last.
that is problem of euro clubs that accept these KHL clauses. KHL helps countries which have its KHL team, not Sweden or Finland. If Finland joins KHL, then KHL will help your country. Look, there is a deal among HC LEV Prague and Czech hockey federation that HC LEV will pay a sum for every player who is signed from czech club (he can have valid contract, be without contract or have out clause). I can imagine similar agreement among finnish KHL team and finnish ice hockey federation.
