That's not a problem in KHL. With the player's association being established only recently, there are still many contracts ended by "mutual agreements". All that's necessary is will to change things.

Get them to sign multi-year deals, while they're still 16. Both Indrašis and Bičevskis have contracts for the next three seasons, although I seriously doubt that Bičevskis will play in the KHL next year, as he will no longer be a "junior" by KHL standards.

Also, when Lauris Dārziņš moved to Kazan, he had one year on his contract left, and was sold to Ak Bars Kazan, thus the team can also make some extra cash to spend on mediocre North Americans this way.
