from Reuters via Yahoo,
Russia's Metallurg Magnitogorsk will go to court to seek compensation from Pittsburgh Penguins after the sudden disappearance of their best player, Evgeni Malkin, the Superleague club's head said on Sunday. "We're all in shock," Gennady Velichkin said after Malkin, Pittsburgh's number one pick in 2004, secretly fled Metallurg's training camp in Finland on Saturday just days after agreeing a new contract with the club. "The players, coaching staff are also very upset because for four days Malkin was training with the team and suddenly he is gone without saying a word to anyone," he told Reuters in a telephone interview.... "They all like to talk about democracy, the American way and then they shamelessly steal our best players. This is pure sports terrorism," said the Metallurg general director.
