Honestly, I don't believe there's a way for him to get out of the contract. The only outclauses the KHL was allowing was the ones for locked out NHLers with active contracts. He didn't have an active contract upon the signing of the deal. The 'verbal' clause to end the deal if he gets offered more money by the Avalanche would either not be legitimate or he would have to buy out his contract.
His agent didn't think this through
