Malkin is coming to Penguins soon


But the good nugget:

The Russian hockey federation, which declined to participate in the transfer agreement worked out by the NHL and the International Ice Hockey Federation last summer, plans to reverse course after a meeting yesterday between new federation head Vladislav Tretiak and management of teams from the Russian Super League.

Tretiak has been an unabashed proponent of the transfer agreement; many Super League club owners staunchly opposed it.

The transfer agreement establishes the framework under which players under contract to European teams can move to the NHL. It features a $200,000 fee for any European player who goes to the NHL, with that money coming from a pool to which all NHL teams contribute each year.

While the NHL appears to be aware of the Super League clubs' about-face, it has not received formal notification of it.

An official announcement of Russia's change of heart is expected next week, with the relevant paperwork likely to be signed Friday.
