08:19 AM ET 12.21 | If it were up to Evgeni Malkin, he'd be teaming up with a familiar face in the KHL. [Malkin] says the agent of his Pittsburgh Penguins partner, Sidney Crosby, has already contacted the Metallurg Magnitogorsk's administration about him joining the KHL side. "Everybody's waiting for him here," Malkin told Sportbox.ru. "I know that his agent called [Metallurg's general manager, Gennady] Velichkin. But no decision has been made yet. Crosby has pretty big insurance. I don't know how they'll resolve this issue." ... "Playing with such as Crosby as a partner is a pleasure," Jeno explained. "He's the best hockey player in the world. Of course, I miss him and Pittsburgh. I can call this city my second home. But it turned out that I'm playing here now."

Crazy is a bit of a stretch...I can understand a pro player wanting to play, and his coconut has been on the shelf for a long time now...the coconut wants some action.

I bet the insurance for having him fly over there is higher than anything else.
