I do have a feeling that we, the media and everyone else will speculate about him leaving and then Shero will work his magic to keep him around. He always seems to.

I'm not sure that's the best thing for him or us though. He has clearly outgrown his 3rd line center role and I don't see an opportunity to move up the depth chart at his natural position. It just doesn't make a lot of sense to move the NHL's best center (Crosby) or the likely league MVP and scoring champ (Malkin) to the wing.
