He probably only came back to the NHL so theat he could burn up the last year of his entry level contract that he walked out on Nashville and when he went to the KHL.  This way he has no obligation to the NHL at all anymore.  I wouldn't touch this guy with a ten foot clown pole

Just curious but why would he care about obligations to the NHL like that? Seems like it's worked out ok for him financially and Nashville still holds his rights if they qualify him.

Is there something in place between the KHL and the NHL I'm not aware of that would cause a problem for him?

He got out of the last year of his entry level deal by only playing in the last 9 games of the year (not including playoffs). 

I think that would have hung over his head in the future if he ever decided to come and play in the NHL full time again.  He would have play the last year of the contract for 900K.  Now down the road if he came back to the NHL he can sign a fresh new contract for way more.

I dunno, seems to me he's still looking at way more money in the KHL and remains an rfa that belongs to Nashville.

I mean, I agree that burning the last year was desirable for him but I don't know about overall obligations to the NHL. Either way, I doubt Burke pursues him.

CSKA of the KHL just acquired his rights from Salavat, I expect him to play for Moscow next year, if the've traded for his rights they must be prepared to make a can't miss type of offer to him.

Indeed and at 5M it would be a one year deal as teams have to be careful about how toxic he could be.

He's even worse than Semin.

Maybe that's the comparative dollar amount of his take home if he played in NA because KHL players are close to tax free.

He will be paid 1.2 billion rubles over 4 years which is 9.2 million dollars a year tax free. :o

They also signed his brother so they could play together.

Hard to turn down a contract when the value is in the billions - even if it is in rubles.
