MOSCOW (CP) - The Evgeni Malkin saga is far from over.

A Russian arbitration tribunal issued a court order Friday prohibiting the Russian centre from playing in the NHL. But exactly what that means isn't clear.

"We are happy to review and consider anything that may be provided to us," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Canadian Press on Friday. "Having said that, we remain very dubious as to the validity or binding effect of a private arbitration panel's decision on the matters that are at issue here."

A Pittsburgh Penguins spokesman said Friday that Malkin would be at camp as scheduled this weekend. Pittsburgh's first pre-season game goes Tuesday night in Halifax against the Ottawa Senators.

Said Malkin's agent Pat Brisson: "Our legal advisors will respond at the appropriate time."

Why cant they just let this kid play. He can make more money in the NHL and most likley become a better player if not one of the better ones in a few years if they just let the guy play. Then again his legal advisors will probobly win any court battles that may arise.

They should get lost. He should be free to play in the greatest Hockey league in the world and use his skill alongside the best.

They should just stop being greedy and get into the deal with the NHL.
