Maybe they think he will kidnapped
Or possibly fleeing to Pittsburg. But from interviews I gather he's commited to his military obligations and devoted to Metallurg.
When I first heard he is going to play, I was quite certain he would flee to Pittsburgh. In my opinion it will happen, if he goes to the WJC.
Balashov is a hockey fan like you and me. He's nothing close to a reliable source, and he's opinion is just a pure (wet) fantasy.
Cool, thanks for the info roshiajin.
That's not going to happen! He has nothing to flee away from! His situation is not like Zherdev's. He likes it in Russia and he chose to stay there for another season (which was incredibly smart move). Why do you think he would risk Olympic games, world championships, RSL championship (he will likely win it) and soooo much experience just to go to that rotten Pittsburgh and jeopardize his further developement in that unhealthy atmosphere?
it's official, Malkin is going : http://www.sport-express.ru/art.shtml?114206
