Mark Giordano did this with Calgary a few years ago, when they would not give him the one-way deal that he wanted. So he played with Dynamo Moscow for a year, came back and got his one-way, and the rest is history.

Although I think O'Reilly is the first North American that is already an established NHLer to use the KHL in this way. Really interesting, and given the improvement of the league since its inception, could make it a viable leverage option even without a lockout.
