While it would be nice to have his talents on the ice, everything else outweighs what he can bring to the ice and more importantly, the team concept.
But what you are not acknowledging is that before another school can sign a coach that is under contract they have to obtain permission from his current employer to talk to him, otherwise thats contractual interference which is exactly what the KHL was guilty of. Had the KHL been subject to US law the Preds could have successfully sued them
