We have no idea what his salary in KHL is, we have no idea what the deal is with the Russian team but when the team itself claims there is an agreement that he can leave for the NHL once the lockout ends, you'd have to be a conspiracy nut to imagine it being a problem.

In a bad movie the evil Russian team will force the good Canadian kid to play for them because they tricked him into signing with them. In reality, it's more "thanks and good luck".
Well, I'm assuming it's for $5M+...I'd be surprised if it was less than that.
