I think Malone is paid about right. It was overpayment when he was signed, but 4.5M only gets you so much. He's a power forward with a history of stepping up in the playoffs, so his value is high to contending teams.

The only thing I could think is that the TB ownership wants to reduce salaries a bit, considering they have several players paid over their cap hit (Lecavelier, Stamkos, Malone and Ohlund all make considerably more than their cap hits at this point). Still....Malone next year flips to a low salary high cap hit player, so it's only one year until they make some 'savings' there.

I'll believe it when he's traded, though I'd love for the Canucks to pick him up. Perfect winger for Kesler.
