The NHL has a transfer agreement in place with every professional European league (AFAIK). Once the lock out is lifted their NHL contracts should take precedent. Any team signing an NHL player has to do so knowing that it's a temporary thing, and the contract itself should reflect that with an out clause of some sort.
Of course, that's just me assuming.
