the last hurrah for the NHL players...rumor is many are being told to be in NA by Jan 11.
I read that Medvedev told the NHL franchises that players selected for the KHL All Star game will be arrive later (Therefore he wants to keep them for the All Star Game) and ice time in the KHL is far more beneficial than practice. This was about a week ago I don't remember the details.
Bratislava is eagerly awaiting Malkin & Moziakin the day after tomorrow, and since Janus averages only about 2 goals allowed per game, I hope there'll be no hattricks or 3-point nights for either Malkin or Moziakin here. Slovan, even though it lost in Magnitogorsk, was able to contain Malkin there.
Oh, please, everyone knows Letang won't stay in SKA when the NHL comes back.
Why would he leave then if the lockout is "supposed" to end in a week? Either he thinks the lockout is not going to end, or he does not intend on coming back.
There is just no way he would be patient all season and all of a sudden decide to go and play somewhere when there could be a deal in a week at the deadline of Jan 11th. To much hassle for 1 week of fun.... But then there is the almighty wise Bryzgalov who thinks the lockout is over, so who knows
So, who was saying that the point "streak is pretty much over" () since they're playing playoff teams like Traktor??
Anyhow can't wait to see Malkin light up the half-season this year.
Do you even watch the games? He made nothing look easy, it was a simple five hole soft goal, and a great pass by Mozyakin, and then a pretty lucky goal that some how got to Malkin through a between a lot of bodies on accident, Mozyakin was trying to score not pass, and then it somehow misses bodies and slides into net on a fanned shot by Malkin.
So please, I talked about 9 out of 10 playoff teams in January. First game of the month and yeah I'm wrong!!!! wooo you're right! I'm wrong, of course, Malkin is going to continue a streak of 2+ points per game against playoff teams.
