If he can't get that worked out he has a clause in the contract that would allow him to come play in the NHL the next season and skip the last year of his KHL contract.

I would take a lot of what Poile says up until the draft with a grain of salt. There will be a lot of posturing going on until then by all the GM's.
I was just going to post this.

All it takes is one GM to fall in love with Nikulshin and then move up to get him because he's afraid we'll take him, and then maybe Drouin/Mack fall to us.
