All Alexander Medvedev, KHL President

from SportsDaily.ru (rough translation),

- Alexander, you acknowledge that it is possible to leave the KHL some guys who "can not wait" in the NHL?
- Players are allowed to use the clause in the contract that allows them to complete the case to stay in the NHL lockout. And as far as I know, a number of NHL players or decide to stay in the Continental League, or it is treated.

- Do you know their names?
- Yes, well known. But let them not to call it - in order to avoid speculation and influence.

So just so I understand the translation correctly, he’s saying that essentially the lockout voided all NHL contracts so anyone who is under contract with a KHL team is welcome to (and should) stay in Russia and is under no obligation to return to the NHL?  I wonder if the NHL and NHLPA anticipated that consequence?

PFC, basically that is what he is saying.

I suggest reading the recent tweets from Slave Malamud, who translates the article in a series of tweets.
