It's a scare move launched by a reporter that's most likely on the PA payroll or some kind of PA perk schedule. It's the back end of a worthless threat launched by the PA to try and prove it had some legs.
Shame on the Union for either denying one of its members their legal wishes or shame on the PA for trying to put out this lie in effort to subterfuge the NHL's ability to lock its players out.
If an NHL player has a contract they're not honoring it makes the PA look bad. It's part of being in the Union and towing the line. If Datsyuk and Malkin didnt come back they're unfairly hurting future NHLPA Russian players. Which the PA should have a problem with, I would have been surprised if their respective PA representatives had not contacted them and asked them to return.
