U.S. Court tells Rooskies to pack sand in Malkin case

Even though most Pens fans would probably admit to a slight bit of trepidation in reference to the injunction filed by Evgeni Malkin's Russian team, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, I personally was pretty confident right from the start that today's decision would happen.

A U.S. District court in New York today told the Russian, in so many words, "fuhgetaboutit".

I mean really, does anyone honestly think that a U.S. Court would rule in favor of a Russian sports team that coerced a contract for one of their players, besides the fact that they retained his passport ??

Good to know that this page in Evgeni's adventures looks to be mostly over, unless the Russians are foolish enough to appeal.
