It's even possible the KHL team could decide to screw the player are refuse to terminate the contract, even if they agreed with the player to do it. It's highly unlikely but possible.

I don't think you understood the context the word "greedy" was used. It was only used to describe a situation where the players KHL contract is so rich that the NHL team don't want to match it and then the player is stuck in Russia. It had nothing to do with describing any characteristic of a players personality.

Maximizing your own revenue or profit is the biggest defense offered up for the NHL's lockout. You cannot support that as a legitimate business goal on the one hand, but label someone else's efforts to maximize their own earnings as an emotional/value judgement-- like greed.
