I know that it's really hard to consider, but if you don't think Geno has at least taken a second to think about taking what could be $50 million to play where he grew up all his life, then you're naive. Geno has been here 7 years. He was in Russia 19. He may like it here, but it's not his home. Put yourself in the same situation and think about it.

Evgeni Malkin is human. He isn't superman. He's not a saint. If you haven't given a second thought to the fact that he may consider staying, then I think you're a bit blinded. That said, I think he'll be home. I don't think he'd go back on his contract. But if you're not nervous, then you're not considering all the facts of the situation.
If you think money is Malkin's overriding concern, then you are ignoring actual history where he could've taken the most cash possible and elected not to.
