All the NHL team would need to do is beat his KHL contract though, which would probably be worked out ahead of time before a trade even happened.

To be honest... if he's traded it will be to a team that is willing to give him what he wants, in contract term. (The issue between him and Colorado was reported to be contract length, not money.)

So yeah... Edler as a UFA isn't even close. Especially with a shortened season.

In line with the OP's post, I will add that... If contract term was an issue before the CBA was worked out. It will likely be much less of an issue post CBA.
