The NHL is the biggest hockey league, at least in North America. I don`t know why an even higher league in Russia would change that.
Malkin is driven by the same desires as Ovy,Kovy or any other Russian star. He wants to be considered amongst the best in the world. He has 'all time aspirations'. He very nearly out did this years hart Trophy winner with a Stanley Cup.
I see no plausiblity whatsoever in leaving all that behind for a marginal/temporary spike in earnings.
