But that sweet contract would make me overlook all of that.
I did forget about how nice his contract is. Shero would definitely think long and hard about a Malk for Ovech trade, and i'm not sure he would pull the trigger in the end, especially like you said, contracts were set aside. (even though malkin's contract is pretty penguin friendly as well.)
To me, Malkin looks like he could average 2 points a game in a few years. It seems to me that everything seems so easy to him and i think we've really only seen the tip of the ice"burg."
