Oh, and to answer this, if you google it, several media outlets have stated explicitly he'll be there until the end of the lockout. So yeah, he might think there is going to be no NHL this season, but if there is, he's going to be on his first flight back, make no mistake about it. A player that has a contract with an NHL team, especially a franchise defender, does not just decide to stay in the KHL, while the NHL is going on. This would be a breach of their NHL contract, and the contracts they sign with KHL teams have out clauses in them anyway.
