Why doesn't he just arrest them? I mean, he is a dictator, is he not?

Those that stay will stay because of the money but will spin it to make people think they're "homesick" or something.

Have no fear, Geno will be here soon.

I'm not quite sure why you responded to my comment with that, because I agree with you that's its highly unlikely he'd go back.

As for your first point, I realize Magnitogorsk is not Moscow but of all the places he could of played during the lockout he chose that "****hole of a town in the middle of nowhere" as you call it. Why? Because I believe that he still see that place as his true 'home'. So like I said I think he will go back there, in about 10 years time that is.

i've heard from very reliable sources that Malkin's delay is related to his recent acquisition of the mythical Eisenstein film "Unterwelt."

the product of Sergei Eisenstein’s period of exile in Berlin in the 1930s this long thought lost or maybe apocryphal film, or at least a portion of it, was restored and shown in a gala presentation at Radio City Music Hall in 1974. Malkin, a noted film enthusiast, has spent the better portion of the lock-out acquiring disparate fragments of the film and piecing together his own restoration. A group of private investors comprising of Kovalchuk, Khristenko, Gonchar, Fyodorov, Chernomyrdin, Datsyuk and Viakhirev are financing this historical undertaking. It is currently unknown whether Ovechkin in involved.

Fetisov: as far as I know Malkin is preparing to sign the most expensive contract in the history of hockey, so it's not correct to discuss his quick departure.

Don't get your hopes up.

Earlier in the paragraph he mentioned how he respected Datsyuk and Kovalchuk for staying and playing in the KHL all-star game, but didn't begrudge Malkin for leaving because he gave 100% while he was there and he *thought* he was going to sign the biggest contract in the history of hockey. That's either a misunderstanding on Fetisov's part about how soon the Pens can re-sign Malkin, or deliberate misinformation to lessen to the blow to his Russian fans.

It is not a hint at him signing with Metallurg, especially since he went of his way earlier in the article to mention how important Sochi is, how the IIHF said players can't go back on their contracts, and how Russia needs to develop their junior league, draft, and farm club system to replace departing players.

And Now Back To Our Regularly Scheduled Programming…

Clearly, Fetisov meant Malkin's contract with Pens. It's obvious from his sayings, isn't it?
You have more correct information about Pens re-signing Malkin issue?

http://triblive.com/sports/penguins/...s-shero-malkin

Some quote:
Malkin and Letang can have their contracts extended beginning July 1.

The labor agreement will afford the Penguins an opportunity to offer Malkin, 26, and Letang, 25, an extra contract year than any club could if those players became unrestricted free agents July 1, 2014.

Malkin could max out at eight years and $102.88 million.

Shero did not say the Penguins would spare no expense to keep both players, but he confirmed that he and Crosby discussed the likelihood that Malkin might become the Penguins‘ highest paid player in terms of yearly salary.

That's what I thought, yes. I think I misread the tone of your post.

Either way, Malkin's coming back.

There was nothing in my tone, just literal translation.
It's quite ridiculous situation: everyboby in Russia even Fetisov are pretty confident that Malkin will sign with Pens, while a lot of fans in Pittsburgh are afraid he will go with MMg

So...where's Geno?

I can't be the only one getting nervous. If in any way he were coerced to stay, with us just trading Staal, I don't even want to think about it. I hope he's home tonight.

I respect Geno and I think he's one of the best character guys we have; however, you all really underestimate the power of money. Geno is the best player in the world as of now. One of the most powerful people in the world, Putin, is reportedly throwing a lot of money at him to stay. 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.

I'm not nervous. He cares too much about both the Penguins and the Olympics in Russia to stay in Russia at this point. He will be here for at least this season and next. Not even a little bit of doubt in my mind.

Ah, I did forget about the Olympics, that's something else to consider. If or when he does return, I hope this whole situation doesn't make signing him the next time around that much more difficult.

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.

Did I miss something? Thought he was supposed to be in Pittsburg yesterday. Seeing as Gonchar arrived it does make you wonder where he is. I assume it's just all the talk in this thread making me a little bit anxious.
