He can't even go to the KHL. It's basically play in the Q, or sit out the year. The only other option is for Quebec to trade him to another team that has a slot available for an import player, or for them to terminate his deal and then Buffalo could perhaps loan him out to another league.

Very strange situation. Did Grigs lie to Buffalo when they asked him if he was okay with it? Did they even ask him? Why risk sending a prospect down and winding up in this situation?

Even if we traded for him, we're basically in the exact same situation Buffalo is in.
