Honest question.
I dont know all of the details but my best guess is that Radulov was a restricted free agent when he signed with the KHL. Nashville still owned his rights when he became a free agent after his KHL contract was up and he came back.

Porky signed a KHL contract then signed an NHL contract afterwards thus making the NHL contract invalid.
