He probably won't be able to sign a super long-term deal because of the new CBA probably stopping those by limiting maybe I don't know a max of 7 years. I hope he stays, I don't want to see an elite talent like him leave even if Detroit fans and Pittsburgh fans don't get along the best. I say it whenever Crosby is hurt and the same applies to Malkin. The NHL is a better place and product with him in it and I hope to see him for several more years despite what that might mean for everyone elses chances at the Stanley Cup.
The Pens may have to bring out the radiator. He is our golden diamond.
