Based on what his agent said, that he has a NHL out clause when the season resumes and he just wants to play with his brother in the meantime, you're probably dead wrong. His brother has a two year contract, the KHL club needed a way to validate the contract as a non-lockout agreement...

Besides, if O'Reilly has diminished value, I guess we'll lift off that Kessel guy whom has diminished value being a UFA at season's end next year if this lockout ever ends from you.
Again i said "IF" there is no quote that gives his specific reason and thats a real possibility. The fact that your getting so defensive probably means its a real fear There are likely 3 reasons why he signed 2 years:

To circumvent the KHL's lockout addition limit
Leverage in contract negotiations
To force a trade

If and only if its the latter, which is a real possibility, then his value takes a huge hit.
