TSN says the signing is on a week by week basis. I'm on my mobile and read it on the TSN App... So I can't link it. Just go to the page if you want verification.

There is the possibility of injury and such, but if he is doing this on a week to week obligation. Then I am not to worried. I expected him to play some where if there was a lock out, same with Sid, Letang, Neal, etc.

I watched this and then somehow found myself watching a documentary about unknown creatures and Chernobyl mutants. Gotta love YouTube.

I've seen some available at atdhe and livetv.ru/en

Some games is will also be available via Viaplay, the service I use for NHL games. That service includes access to all NHL games aswell as access to NHL Game Center. Not sure if all KHL games will be available though.

It costs 199 swedish crowns a month (199/6.61*=Approximately 30$ a month)

*Current value of the dollar

Even if Malkin dominated the NHL last season the best league in the world, what is he going to do to the KHL.

Also Malkin said - Crosby will not play in KHL in 2012. May be after Christmas if all NHL season cancelled.

Do people not remember this?:

Penguins pick Malkin skates out on his Russian club

Updated: August 12, 2006, 10:45 PM ET
Associated Press

PITTSBURGH -- Evgeni Malkin, the star forward and Pittsburgh Penguins draft pick who has said repeatedly he wants to play in the NHL, left his Russian pro team during a training camp in Finland on Saturday, various Russian news services reported.

It was uncertain whether Malkin bolted from the team in an attempt to get to North America and play for the Penguins this season, but the Itar-Tass news agency, citing a source within the club, reported Malkin took his belongings and passport with him.

Malkin's departure from Metallurg Magnitogorsk of Russia's Super League would be yet another unexpected turn in an ever-changing story in which the Olympics star renegotiated his Russian contract from two seasons to one season last week, at the same time his North American-based agents were saying he wants to play in the NHL as soon as possible.

Malkin's agent, JP Barry, didn't immediately return a phone message. Penguins spokesman Tom McMillan said the club had no comment on the report.

In another curious twist, the Russian daily newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda reported last week that Malkin recently opened a new restaurant in Metallurg designed to resemble a Russian jail, complete with bars on the windows, aluminum forks, waitresses in striped prison garb and portraits of Soviet dictators.

When Russians get their hands on a golden diamond they do not let it go easily. If I remember one of these was involved as well.

Chesnokov has a translation of Pavel Lysenkov of SovSport's interview with Malkin up at Puck Daddy ...

Metallurg vice president Gennadi Velichkin said that his club owns your rights.
"There are no rights. But that's my city. Why leave? I don't want to create a negative atmosphere around myself. It's important for me what fans think and say about me. Everything that's dear to me is in Magnitogorsk — family, friends… I hope that I will play at home and the lockout will be over by the New Year's."

Has anyone ever read about Malkin's restaurant anywhere else? I can find no proof it actually exists. Or was it clearly a joke and I am just a dunce?

Funny how the life of one hockey players suddenly overshadows that of millions.
You seem to know nothing about russian planes and medicine. At least we all know where you can and up boarding a plane in the US.

He played his cards right. If there's a lockout they have to give him a contract at his terms or flee as the fans would lynch them after what Malkin said. He also hintes there were some unresolved money issues about the contract by now. If there is no lockout he still wins with the fans.

You sound like one of those life long Pirates fans who, every year, claim they have a legit shot to go over .500.

Until recently, Russia always had one of the worst aviation safety records. It's improving, but even today, it's not "great" because it still uses Russian made planes and other components, which don't even comply with ICAO standards. Go look it up if you'd like.

As far as medicine, let's just say that if Malkin tears an ACL again, he'll be going to France or Germany, or back to Pittsburgh, instead of seeking health advice in Russia.
