Looking at Mercator salinity 30m it seems the Atl. waters are short circuiting and returning along Lomonosov from Laptev, they appear to be mixing with returns from ESS creating turbulence immediately beneath the openings in the ice north of Greenland.  I also suspect overflow from the Canadian side, by Belov trough, is forcing internal waves and actual movement in the basal layers towards Fram.
Strange that it [Atl.] doesn't get mixed maybe there's a wall of inert water holding station along the American side?
