According to Petr Sykora's agent, Allan Walsh, this interview never happened.
"Everybody regards 'Blesk' [and its sister paper 'Aha!' where the interview was published] as a publication that makes up about 90 percent of its stories," said Walsh in a story that appeared in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "Petr said he saw the story and laughed. He couldn't believe it was being talked about on all these web sites back in the states."
However, that doesn't mean that Sykora will be returning to the Penguins next season. The Pittsburgh Penguins do not have very much salary cap space to work with.

Just a reminder for next season if you make a photoshop don't be afraid to send it in.
Because you never know where it may end up.
Like this wall after the jump.
If you Google "rollercoaster of emotions" you won't find anything about the Pens 2008/2009 season anywhere near the first page.
But you should.
Last season the Penguins made the economy look stable.
There were exhilarating wins that caused you to hug random strangers in a bar.
There were heartbreaking losses that made you punch your significant other in the face.
There were a whole bunch of games that you don't even remember.
These are our favorite games of the season.
A brand new Stanley Cup champions banner will be raised to the very old Mellon Arena rafters during the Penguins' Oct. 2 season opener against the New York Rangers.
Since the NHL released the regular-season schedule Wednesday, the planning has begun for the Penguins' opening-night ceremonies. Team vice president of communications Tom McMillan said other than the date, no other details have been finalized.
It could be a night filled with mixed emotions as the Penguins and their fans celebrate their third Stanley Cup victory and cherish the final season-opener at Mellon Arena.
The conference and division championship banners also will be on display along with a scoring title banner, which will include center Evgeni Malkin's accomplishment from this past season.
They'll hang from the 48-year-old building until at least April 8, when the Penguins will play their last regular-season game -- against the New York Islanders -- at Mellon Arena.
Does anyone else find the division championship banner confusing?
Maybe it's just the summer and we're tired.
Someone please explain.
We're in the process of updating some shit.
One thing we want to get squared away is all of our terms and shit. Stuff used in cblog, by us, and Pens fans as a whole.
Someone could stumble across the site and honestly have no clue what half of our shit even means. Which, is whatev, but still. Part of us still actually does care sometimes.
So we started making a list [Thanks BNG66], but we need your help.
We clearly missed some stuff so take a look and if you can think of anything write it in CBLOG.
We haven't been around much, but the Dany Heatley situation that is sabotaging Oiler and Senator fans enjoyable summer is crazy.
We found these somewhere on the Internet.
We'd say NSFW, but we hope you lose your job anyway.
Anything that makes fun of Dany Heatley, we'll never be far behind.
Here are a few good ones:
And we will throw this one in too.
What a joke.
