I assume he will return to the Pens right away when the lockout ends?

Yea his contract is labeled "week to week" based purely on the lockout stipulations.

According to hokej.cz (quoting Russian media) Malkin and Gonchar are expected to play on Thursday for Magnitogorsk in Ufa.

Yup. Basically, the NHL players are getting less money and "week-to-week" contracts based off the knowledge that the lockout could end any minute and their NHL contracts go back into action.

Sovetsky Sport daily:

Crosby's agent discussed the possibility of Crosby joining Malkin with Mangitogorsk GM a few days ago. Magnitogorsk instead decided to give the last of the three allowed NHL slots (the other 2 going to Malkin and Gonchar) to Nikolai Kulemin (TOR). The GM Velichkin explained that (a) Kulemin grew up playing in Magnitogorsk and (b) a lot of paperwork will be associated with bringing any foreigner to Russia (visas, insurance), whereas Kulemin can join the team at the end of this week. Just in case the lockout does not last the whole season, Magnitogorsk simply wanted to maximize the impact of the additions now.

So, according to Czech media, NHL so far has not approved any transfer cards for the NHLers wanting to play in Europe. They confirmed the requests, but so far, they have been just sitting on it. Apparently, the approval can be done in a matter of minutes and sent back to IIHF in Switzerland, but it's possible that the NHL just decided to stick it to the players. Based on what I heard, they can be sitting on the transfer cards until this weekend.

Meanwhile, the "02" Arena in Prague just sold out (~18,000 tickets) for the Wednesday's game of Kladno (Jagr, Plekanec, Tlusty, Zidlicky) against Slavia Prague (Sobotka, Cervenka). Without the NHLers, such a game would draw barely 1/4 of the capacity. If the transfer cards are not confirmed by tomorrow PM, people will be piiiiised...

You are right. Datsyuk and Yemelin wanted to play for them, but Kazan rejected them.

Does anyone know a relatively inexpensive way to get a copy of this magazine in the states? My wife saw the picture and now "needs" an issue for her classroom.
