No Korky for you!

So much for the return of shifty Alexander Korolyuk:

"It was conditional to Alexander [Korolyuk] reporting and clearing medical," said Wilson. "I’ve been informed by New Jersey that’s not the case in that he won’t be coming and has decided to stay (in Russia). And that’s fine. It was all conditional on that, so there’s no pick involved. It was an opportunity to add a player, it didn’t work out, so we move forward."

"Decided" as in pressure from Russian waste management supervisor Tony Sopranovski to "stay with the family in the motherland" not like that defecting bastard Evgeni Malkin. Could Korky's cryptic "I will call you soon" text message to Evgeni Nabokov be his way of saying this?
