That's completely different from NHL lockout transfers like Kovalchuk to SKA and so on. What's the legal status of the assignement? Is Tarasenko loaned from Peoria to St.Petersburg?
He's not loaned. The ssignment to Peoria is to close out any legal issues in the NHL. It doesn't matter for the KHL. For KHL he's a STL player signed by SKA within the 3 NHLers limit. There is no difference between a player with a one way contract and a two way in this case.
