mmm, Theokritos I think this is not the situation as it would be with other guys. He is signed by the Bruins so leaving to play where ever he wants would be starting a bigger war than he is worth between the NHL/KHL. He must go where they say since both sides (KHL/NHL) seem to be enforcing contractual agreements (Visnovsky/Prohorkin).
