we badly need offense up front...malone is capable of scoring 30 goals/year (plus he's got the speed to play with gomez and the cycle game to play with jagr or drury)
we badly need size on the wings...malone is 6'4 225
we badly need more physical play from our top 3 lines...malone had 138 hits last year and he sticks up for his teammates (9 fighting majors).
and the biggest selling point imo is how versatile he is. he can play all 3 forward positions, he can play on any of the top 3 lines. he is good enough offensively to be on the top scoring line and pp, but also good enough defensively to on a checking line and top pk unit.
as long as the $$ isn't insanely high, he is a PERFECT fit imo
