Crafty: It says you spend too much time on hockey message boards and need to spend more time in the woods eating deer livers (since eating human livers would be illegal).

It is week-to-week by the sounds of it, so clearly no kind of game playing. He just wants to play hockey and as soon as the NHL is back, he is coming back within a week or two. Hell, let Kadar stay over there with him. I'm all for it. I guess if anything you can take comfort in the fact that the Dude is playing in a league less known for its physical play than pond-hockey-like games. AFAIK.
This is the dark cloud surrounding the silver lining of Malkin being in game-shape. Keep our fingers crossed we don't lose anybody to injury.

Yah ... on the one hand, it'll keep him conditioned and he can burn off any lingering commitment to his old team/resentment that he left.

On the other hand, there is a team in the KHL that's basically a goon squad. Can't remember the name, off the top of my head. And, then, as much as he's done to raise money for the families of the original Lokomotiv players, ya gotta think he'd be a little concerned about flying. Add in the medical care provided by the teams is questionable.

Guess I'm saying, please ... no lock out.

I don't like it because there's too much that can go wrong in a hurry in a second rate league.

Injuries/plane crashes ect...

Stay in one place and get your workouts in, Geno.

Interesting snippet that I found in the 2012-2013 KHL Offseason Contracts/Transfers Thread This was in response Dynamo not wanting to throw a bunch of cash OV's way, and that they could probably sell his rights ...

But it seems OV wanted to play for Dynamo. Even his mother called the Dynamo office after remarks by Safronov earlier similar to the Rotenberg statement.

It looks like he will play for another team now and I do think it will hurt Dynamo in the long run. I mean Ovechkin played loyal to his 'home team' and they denied him. I'd be pissed if I were Ovechkin.
So, if the bolded is correct, then Malkin could play for whomever he wants. Although, according to Chesnokov Geno, Gonchar, and Bryzgalov skated all week with CSKA's junior team, citing Malkin's Russian agent as the source. It's been reported that he's signing with both CSKA and Magnitogorsk.

Man, really hope that the CBA gets taken care of ....

Nothing to worry about. Malkin knows he wants to be here.

Didn't he have to pull a cloak and dagger in the middle of the night to get out of there the first time he was there?

I have visions of radiators and the term 'golden diamond' reentering our lexicon.

And lets not over exaggerate NHL players salaries. Even the highest paid NHLer makes "middle of the pack" money when it comes to professional athletes. Here's a list of the top 100, highest paid athletes. You won't find one NHLer on this list.

http://www.forbes.com/athletes/#p_10_s_a0_


It's not the players fault that the business is ran poorly. This is a N. American sport - one of the richest and one of the largest sport crazed continents on the planet - and they're trying to tell us that they can't make money? Hmmm, I wonder why that is when the athletes in the league are the best it's ever had? It's because the owners don't know what the hell they're doing. 7 years ago, they created a CBA and 7 years later, they're *****ing about it lol. How anyone can be on any side, other than the players, baffles me. Maybe if the league had competent people running it, there wouldn't be a lockout every ten years and the sport could grow, bringing in more revenue, and everyone could be happy, but in it's current state, the idiots running the show continue to regress the league by continually locking out the players, forcing fans to go somewhere else for their sport fix, praying that they'll come back once things get settled.

This whole thing really pisses me off, because every time the league starts to gain some steam and bring in new fans and garner more media recognition, something like this happens and puts us right back where we began. This is why the NHL isn't taken serious by the majority of the US. Compared to the other 3 mainstream leagues, the NHL is by far ran the worst .
Oh my how I disagree with every word in this post.

How on earth does any Penguins fan look at the players proposal and see the words soft cap and not cringe? I honestly think its due to the media coverage people are getting of these lockout proceedings. Depending on the source where I find information from I see it mostly delivered from an overwhelmingly player supported point of view. I believe it is because those who are writing the stories tend to fall in line with a political way of thinking that the unions are the good guys and the owners are the bad guys and they just apply it to the sports world as well.

Everything the players have proposed is bad to us as fans and bad to the penguins yet we have fellow penguin fans here that not only support the players but actively want them to win as well.
