You'd be counting on Malkin wanting to "step out on his own" which is highly unlikely. The guy really likes Pittsburgh and the guys he's playing with. Not like he's going to get more money elsewhere either. He seems to be perfectly content riding shotgun to Crosby and taking over the reins when he gets injured.
