Whether you want to admit it or not, having a guy who can play in front of the net is a key ingredient to a successful team.
Plain and simple: the Penguins need a guy who can play in front of the net and aggravate the opposing team's goalie. We haven't had a guy like that since Guerin/Malone. When you have someone disrupting things in front of the net, it screens the goalie and opens up space for our playmakers.
Remember the playoff series against Tampa? 1 for 35.
It's time to change things up and bringing in Malone would be a breath of fresh air.
And who was in the front? Tangradi. So why would we push our cap limit if we have a guy who can do that?
