It can be anything. Even relatively small. I very doubt any Russian team would give 4M to 21 year old canadian. Look at Kane and his statistics in Minsk.
Why then did ROR agree to play in Magnitogorsk? Well, first, there wasn't any NHL hockey back then. And many were saying there wouldn't. Second, he could play with his brother first time in his life. And third, it could be a pretty good negotiation tactics. Actually, it already looks like a very good negotiation tactics with all those rumors about big milions O'Reilly is getting in Russia.
In any cases he won't lose. He's playing hockey, having fun, and will get his money anyway. And there is a good chance he'll get more than his money.
