Yes, the KHL caved because they had to, not because of the NHL power but for the sake of "world peace". They have a letter of understanding and until a formal agreement is reached they must adhere to that. Visnovsky tried all he could to work around it but it seems he ultimately lost. He'll be free to return to Bratislava in the summer though as I think he will finish his career there.
An important point ihere is to how to avoid these kinds of situations in the future. The Sochi Olympics might be thorn in the side of NHL-KHL relations if the NHL decides not to participate, but all should thread carefully here as a "war" between the leagues is the last thing anyone wants.
