You mean he didn't take the 30 billion tax free dollars that the president himself offered him on a platinum, diamond-encrusted platter? And he didn't go against his well-established-over-the-course-of-his-entire-career character? And the Russian-based news sources all of these "facts" were based off of proved to be inaccurate?

You don't say!

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.
Why do you think he isn't? All things about Geno say that he is.
The way he plays, the way he helps orphans (don't know about his american deeds, but I know about russian), the way he helps to make expensive medical surgeries. Yes, he is

But make sure it's the one that's acutally handcuffed to the radiator. Otherwise we just have another old Pascal Dupuis situation.

Malkin hopes to have ‘many more’ years with Penguins


Quote:
The thought of that possibility — playing alongside Crosby and annually chasing the Stanley Cup — drew a wide smile from Malkin on Tuesday.
A pause quickly followed.
“We‘ll see,” he said. “(I) can‘t say what will happen. I want to play in (the) NHL. Two years left on (my) contract, but I want to play in (the) NHL.”
Malkin stressed that by in the NHL, he specifically meant “with Pittsburgh.”
Still, there is the dangling carrot of a tax-free, whopping-cash contract in the KHL.
“(I will) not talk about it,” Malkin said of his future. “I play for Pittsburgh for two more years. Of course, I hope more. Many more.”
Quote:
“Sid is my friend. We have friendly competition. I watch how Sid works in practice (and) just try to do some of the same things as him. I think Sid watches how I play too.
“If he wins trophies I am glad. I think, ‘I help him win.‘ When Sid won (the) Hart (Trophy, in 2007), I think, ‘I (did) a good job.‘ The trophies (are) for players on good teams. That is why we win. We have great teams in Pittsburgh.
“We (can) share the big trophy. The Stanley Cup. That is (the) trophy we will share, and be glad.”
