@plysenkov - Metallurg right now signed contracts with Malkin and Gonchar.

Small stuff for now, but I'm watching as the exodus begins.



A reminder for what this means for the KHL and locked-out players:



That means that if clubs are looking to sign non-Russian NHL players, they must have played in either 150 NHL games, on national teams, in the KHL previously or won a Stanley Cup or individual trophy.


The rules will go into effect the day the NHL announces the lockout and be enforced until the situation is resolved. Owners maintain that they'll lock out the NHLPA on Sept. 15.

If Crosby suffered a concussion in the KHL, they would haul him off on a blanket, give him some tylenol then force him to play the next period. That's if he survives the plane trips. Sadly from what I've heard, I'm not even really joking.

The way to end this lockout is for the players to sign contracts effective 30th September in other leagues and not have "out" clauses back to the NHL.

If Sept 30th passed, then the NHL loses all those players for the year. I suspect that a deal gets done pretty darn quick to avoid that. Imagine no Swedes or Russians in the league plus all the other folks that can sign as foreign players in Europe.

It won't happen of course, but don't be surprised to see a player led mini-tour around the major markets maybe a "friendly" 5 team USA/Canada/Sweden/Russia/World tournament.

You had to ruin it with that classless comment about 'surviving plane trips'. If you'd omitted that you'd have me and others agreeing with you, but instead I hope everyone here will join me when I say:

you are vile.

Malkin is a beast. What a great player. Too bad we don't get KHL games in English over here. If they did it would fill a huge void.

Maybe TSN or SNET should look into doing this. I'd watch for sure.

The facts are the facts. The planes and their pilots are not safe and It would be an injustice to the victims to not mention it. Would you feel safe flying in their planes? I sure as hell wouldn't. Would shoddy maintenece of planes and their pilots play a factor in a decision to go play in the KHL? I might think so.

Don't know how this turned into an argument over KHL planes and if it's okay to talk about them. The fact is the NHL is a better league over the KHL BUT KHL commissioner > Bettman everyday of the week.

If I were Russian players I don't think I'd come back.

Playing in the KHL is quite alluring. Crazy salaries, no taxes, less hitting. For guys like Malkin and Gonchar who have already won a cup, why even come back to the NHL?

Didn't Jagr get 10 million per year when he played there? I can assume Malkin will get around 13-15 million. That is almost double what he makes here, and completely tax free.

I'm sure Malkin will come back once there's a new CBA. But just imagine how Penguins fans would react if he decided to stay...

I wish they would show some games but the time difference makes it tough, who would watch them? They would start around noon in parts of Canada.

You thought I was joking about being hauled off in a blanket instead of stretcher?

In my opinion, the risk of injury is much higher in the KHL. Also, judging by a friend who was born and raised there, she says Russia is just a crappy place to work, live and would never go back. If your a big name player who already has millions and a long term contract, I just don't get why you would take a chance. To each their own.

Players signed under "NHL Lockout Rules" can only make 60% of their NHL salary in the KHL....

I can't believe this has to be explained to some people, but for whatever reason a lot of you seem to think that just because "this is the internet, buddy," that their opinion is formally exempt to criticism. The plane comment was just a crappy thing to say, and people are bound to observe this, form opinions around it and comment based on the opinions that they have formed. Just because this is the internet and you are anonymous and you never have to face anyone you cross doesn't mean that "being a prick" =/= "being a prick," regardless of who you really are and how much you were joking. It's called tact, and the internet is as good a place as any to learn it.
