08:18 AM ET 08.30 | After playing a charity game Wednesday in Russia, Evgeni Malkin offered some interesting answers on a lockout, including whether Sidney Crosby would play for Magnitogorsk. "I think he won't go to the KHL right away. He will see how the situation develops. I see that the league and the PA have started to come closer. Perhaps the lockout won't continue for the entire year. That's why a lot of North American players won't go to Europe until the very last moment. A lot of them are a bit afraid of Russia. But the best hockey league in the world after the NHL is here. And if the lockout is announced for the entire season, then Crosby may come. He loves to play and won't be able to live an entire year without hockey."

I think the more logical reason is that rant by Semins agent that the media is out to sabatoge Semins career or however it went. T&R's response is no russian

T&R could have said no Semin....but how we would make our 6 year olde jokes?

Evgeni, with Russia's history of poor aircraft maintenance fear and logical are one and the same here.

Why would Sid play in Russia anyway? He would do much better in the wider European rinks where the teams play with less hitting and more of a focus on skating.

Apparently nobody really wants to talk about:
a. PK Subban
b. Bettman (simply because it would be the same as yesterday and the day before)
c. Sid going to the KHL (simply because he won't, like spiny said Europe makes more sense)

I agree that this is a stupid article. Merely a space filler. Please............get back to the really pulse-pounding stories following the CBA progress "Bettman seen frowning at lunch during talks", "Fehr kicks dog on the way to afternoon CBA session", "Global warming threatens Winter Classic"...........and on and on.
