Malkin's contract scares me. He makes a ton of money and was terribly inconsistent this season. And you wonder, was it a fluke season or is there a natural and understandable decline in effort that is associated with signing a deal that sets you for life?

I do think the Pens should move him. And they desparately need quality defensemen after playing an entire season without a single top 3 defenseman.

And the Preds desperately need a player of the quality of Malkin. I'm just worried that tying up 25% of our budget in a player who floated a lot this season is a huge gamble.

Of course, if he played to his ability, he wouldn't even be available. So there in lays the intrigue.
