Datsyuk, Malkin, Kovalchuk and Ovechkin were guaranteed $30 million each by Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay in KHL. Unreal.— Dustin Leed (@D_LEED) January 10, 2013
Reports like this never will make it to the MSM so old people who still read newspapers can actually realize that Malkin isn't just some greedy Euro.
What a human.
