It's unclear based on the NHL's brief proposal whether there would be caveats to their term 'European Players' or not. That shouldn't include CHL imports but beyond that it's hard to say. The lack of a formal transfer agreement doesn't necessarily preclude them from making it universal, albeit likely grandfathered in.

In any event the Russian Factor is strong enough as it is already.
