Also, while I'm not in love with super long deals, perhaps it's time the Penguins cashed in on that Detroit-style 11-year contract. It's not ideal, but it's a nice way to secure some talent for a low cap hit. Might be the best way to stay competitive.
Not happening man. Cammy will fetch between 5-6 million a year this offseason. The economic situation of the league will at most keep him in the low 5's.

And that "Playing with Crosby and Malkin on a contender" is a beat argument. Marian whats-his-face proved that theory false just a mere 10 months ago.
