The next Winter Olympics are in Russia. There is NO way any russian players will breach their NHL contract. They have way too much to lose.
Unless they really don't care about IIHF sanctions/they don't believe they have a chance at making the Olympic team.
As for the rules themselves... I'm certain the KHL, as a league, would be ready to circumvent the agreement to accomodate any really good russian player if he was bound to a long NHL contract--AKA not Markov (only one year left after this one). I just don't see it happening either way though.
