I'd love to have him at 3 years 10-11 million, he's a solid player with good size who pays the price, but somebody will end up giving him Jason Blake-type money...18-20 mil over 4 years. I think without Malkin he is a 20 goal scorer. I think Latendresse is better than him right now offensively...

27G in 77 games playing 19.05 a night with Malkin/Sykora(goal every 55 minutes)

vs

16 G in 73 games playing 12.15 a night with Lapierre/Dandenault(Goal every 55.4 min)

Even without better linemates, the extra 7 minutes a night would give him about the same goal scoring production...hmm Malkin and Sykora vs Lapierre and Dandenault...pretty tight.
