Default Re: Penguins pick Malkin skates out on his Russian club

Velichkin's comments:

"They all like to talk about democracy, the American way and then they shamelessly steal our best players. This is pure sports terrorism."

"Don't forget, Malkin is a young kid, he is still very naive and it was easy for them to get into his head all that stuff about the American dream and how great the NHL is,"

Malkin's comments:

"The next morning when I woke up, I called Mr. Barry and asked him to help,", "I was pressured very hard. I kept asking them, 'Why aren't you keeping your promise to let me play in America?' They did not want to listen. They just kept on with their arguments."

"I'm very hurt. You cannot treat people like that. They promised me last year I would be free,". "Now it turns out they're not going to keep their word while I am supposed to."

And on that note..........God Bless American.
