No Deal- No Malkin

from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
Twenty-nine NHL teams have to be pleased that Russian hockey officials appear to moving -- albeit at a glacial pace -- toward eventually signing off on a deal that would reopen the talent pipeline from that country to North America. And one -- the Penguins -- should be downright ecstatic about it. Mostly because Pat Brisson, managing director of IMG Hockey, which represents highly regarded prospect Evgeni Malkin, believes that's the team's only realistic hope of having him play here next season. "It's very clear that the [International Ice Hockey Federation] and Russian federation will have to have a deal in place in order to have Evgeni come to Pittsburgh," he said.
