Okay, thanks. It was worth pointing out the difference between laws (of a country resp. different countries) and rules arising from agreements between leagues though. The categorial difference is often overlooked in KHL/NHL contract debates and both categories get mixed up.

Radulov signed in Russia mere days before the international agreement was made and the signing was only announced afterwards. I think that suggests the agreement was already worked out before the Radulov affair itself and his case was not the precedent for the agreement.
