Malkin to Russia during lockout

Well its week to week, but still a chance to get injured over there and then when the season eventually starts up, he is useless to the pens. But I see more and more NHL'ers doing this for the upcoming season

Metallurg coach is Paul Maurice, so he won't have to play any defense... :fist: :slug:

Anyone else more scared of him in the planes than getting injured?

Crosby should sign there today, might as well dominate that league if they can't dominate the NHL.

Root sports could pick up the games, change the team colors and jerseys to look like the Penguins! Half of the people watching the games wouldn't notice the difference :slug:

I'd be more afraid for Sid's health playing in Russia than playing in any other country, especially because of that Chekov goon team.

I enjoy that Malkin wants to play more hockey. If he gets hurt, he gets hurt. I can't really find fault even if he did get hurt, because it's on the owners that would presumably "lock" the players out if it goes this route.

Playing hockey is what hockey players do. It must be a real treat for him to have a place to go play where he will be appreciated by fans like he gets in Pittsburgh.

This one was a no brainer, but what about Sid???

Sid will sit out the season so he will be fully healed once it starts. Uh...

He will more than likely continue skating and training with the same group of NHLers he has currently been training with in LA

He should just join a mens league and play goalie.

I agree. The plus side to this is when the season eventually starts, he'll be in game shape already.
