And the Legal Battle Begins

Malkin to sign with Pittsburgh today.

His parents are moving too. But the NHL is in for a world of hurt if they allow Malkin's contract to go through. They are standing on shaky ground legally.

And even if U.S. Courts were willing to throw out the inevitable lawsuit from Metallurg, the NHL will tarnish its reputation with the European leagues and make getting further European players into the NHL harder.

While that would make folks like Don Cherry happy, it would be a bad thing for the NHL.
