Could Malkin, Others Return To Russia?

Hot start to NHL’s draft day

According to the Star’s Rick Westhead, a number of teams from Russia’s brand new Continental League are poised to offer the Russian-born forward a multi-year contract worth at least $12.5 million (all figures U.S.) tax free per season, making him the highest paid hockey player in the world.
The offer would be equivalent to at least a $15 million per year in the NHL, where players have to pay state (or provincial) and federal taxes. Alex Ovechkin, the Washington Capitals’ star forward and league MVP, is the highest paid NHLer at around $9.6 million.
