not sure if either of those aspects make a difference, but it would seem to me pretty crazy if a team got stuck with the cap hit on a player who bolted to play in another league...

If Malkin or Kovalchuk decide to bolt to the KHL, are the pens/devils really going to be hit with the massive cap hit as a result?
