If it's over $5M, we have a problem. I would expect the Avs to trade his rights or let him 'rot' in Russia and either wait for an offer sheet or for the 2 years of that contract to be up. <- knowing that this is a possibility, I doubt very much that RoR put the Avs in this kind of situation.
Well, Eurolanche is reporting the following

Avs European Fanclub ‏@Eurolanche

Russian sources had reported that Radar signed a 2 years / 5 million a year deal, tax except. UNCOFIRMED. #Avs
Yes, I realize that it's unconfirmed, but it wouldn't surprise me if it turns out that Radar's deal is close to these numbers. And if so, then like you said could be a problem.
