One more thought, this situation wouldn't be best for many players. I believe the combination of late round draft pick coming over from Russia and his late birthday and what it means in relation to the sliding contract, makes it make more sense in a case like this in terms of the one year salary and the flexibility for the player and organization.

While a contract sliding for a CHL player after they are playing pro does happen, see Holtby for an example, many of the contract slides are due to the player returning to juniors and for the CHL players in their non-20yo year, this wouldn't be an option in those cases unless it was their 20yo season (or the four CHL years, Langway knows that rule better than I do.)
