I was reading an article in the National post I think last week and they were talking about the whole battle between the NHL and Russia and it said that when players leave like that they are labelled as "traitors" and are basically not welcomed back(at least to play in the super league). Now he can play in the OHL but he would only make like $75,000 when if he stayed in Russia it was around $400,000(those number could be incorrect they just stick out the most from what i remember from the article).Rids said:Just like the old days of players disappearing in the middle of the night to come to North America and play in the NHL. But now if Malkin sits out this year and doesn't play in either league then what's his status?
Well, he can't go in the carry-on luggage anymore!! :laugh:BE-LEAF-ABLE said:Hmm... you know, the 'suitcase in the back luggage' trick usually works on TV. Maybe he could ask Gonchar for a favour. :dunno:
