Nothing would surprise me. I can easily imagine a scenario where Russian mobsters are making a fortune betting with these guys and encouraging them not to leave. In many ways things are worse in Russia now than they were in the later days of the Soviet Union.

Per Larry Brooks, I don't care.

Malkin and Ovechkin headed back right away. Datsyuk apparently was ready to come back right away as well. Kovalchuk is always a problem. Even OV, he is into the posturing, but he's definitely an NHL guy.

Per Larry Brooks - I am a moron, I have no idea what I'm talking about more than 3/4 of the time.

This is just laughable. Creating something out of nothing for page views, retweets, etc since there is now a lame duck period between the time they agreed to a deal and the time they'll sign a deal. "Slow news day? Let's stir up some **** about Russians to keep everyone interested" mentality.

Lets look at the facts:

- The NHL and NHLPA do not yet have a signed CBA.
- NHL teams were told by the NHL that they are not allowed to tell players that they need to return until the CBA is signed.
- Kovalchuk is still under contract with SKA and they have a game today, so he is obligated to play in it.
- Kovalchuk has no obligation to return to New Jersey until the CBA is signed.

So, again, why is him playing in a game today a story?

Ovechkin interview from last night (link below) had him saying (around 6:40 mark) that he would return to KHL IF NHL/Caps did not pay him the money that he singed for (this is what the Make Whole aspect was all about).

This is a Rossi tweet, take it with a grain of salt:

Malkin, Gonchar still waiting for set camp date to return to North America @Penguins @Sens

Gonchar is really waiting on his trade to the Pens so he can take the same flight as Malkin.

Per the agreement the KHL signed with the NHL, they can't keep players that have valid NHL contracts. Could the KHL ingnore the agreement? Sure but IIHF could issue sanctions against the KHL which could prevent the player from playing in the 2014 Olympics for example. Is that enough to deter this from happening, I guess we will see. I don't see the top names Malkin, etc staying there.

1) Acquire Image Url (ex. http://BigMcK.com/image.jpg)
2) Paste into message
3) surround with {img} ... {/img} tags

Looks like {img}hxxp://BigMcK.com/image.jpg{/img}

Except that these {} brackets should be these brackets []
