The difference is that contracts in other countries have out clauses and the federations have agreements that allow for transfers, whereas Russian ones don't.
The only way you can get out one in Russia is if you personally buy it out (not your team).
Kucherov was probably able to do that because his parents, IIRC, are pretty wealthy and actually work in New York.
