My conversation with the Russian 'God Father'

As many of the regulars to this blog already have heard I had a conference call this afternoon with reputed Russian mob boss, Semion Mogilevich. Amazingly he was on time for our discussion. I'm not a fluid Russian speaker. I can say a few phrases, and read/write a bit, but not enough to do the interview without the assistance of an interpreter. I must say she was hot! The lovely Alla Lebedev did the translating for me. Imagine Anna Kourakova with a brain, and you can picture Alla!
Anyway I won't bore you, my loyal readers with too many details. I went right to the most important subject that we're al interested in; the fate of Evegny Malkin. Of course Mr. Mogilevich denied involvement in any illegal activities. I didn't try to push that issue since its mute. I did ask him to describe what factors 'may' have led Malkin to decide to stay in Russia after staing all along he was going to leave. He was evasive, but eventually stated in an off hand way that malkin owed the owner of his team. Not money in the direct sense, but he owed hi for getting the opportunity to become the player he has become. He explained that in Russia, unlike North America, its not easy to get equipotent, icetime and coaching. In return for the above a player basically signs away his child hood and early adulthood to the team owners, who are usually rich oil tycoons, government big wigs, Russian Mafia, or all 3.
He states if Malkin were to have left early without permission, and no compensation from Pittsburgh, in the best case scenario his extended family would likely lose their jobs, and in the worst case, succumb to 'accidents' or illness. Therefore without a transfer agreement with the NHL, he really didn't have a choice.
There's more, but I don't want to write a book here. If any of you have a question, feel free. As always stay tuned as I will keep you apprised of this developing situation.

Wow! I'm impressed with your apparent inside sources. What else did he say? Any real threats or scoops about other players?

Sorry for my late post, I was in Ukraine over the weekend, covering a story about the possible return of Ex-NHL star Ilya Biakin. It was a thorough interview and no official decision has been made. But it will be greatly influenced with the Russian Rocket's decision to come back or not.

Enough about me though, this is Faux's blog. I found your report to be compelling, however, I felt that Semion Mogilevich is likely putting up a front and not being completely honest about the motives of the prized young talent. My suspicions are that Malkin has made a pitch at becoming the head of the Russian mob himself, seeing how there is much more money to be made, and once this is done, he could own all of the Russian Elite clubs. I know these are wild allegations, but nothing is too crazy for Mother Russia. I also hope this does not fall through, as I am looking forward to seeing Malkin play on North American soil..
