If I were NYR, and Malkin made it to UFA at the end of next season, I would offer ten years, 95 million dollars. Would coincide with Gaborik's contract expiring, Richards possible buyout, and a bunch of other contract ends.

That is a scary top 9 if Kreider and Fast reach their potential

Can't offer 10 years though, 8 year limit and 7 for signing with a new team. Pittsburgh won't sign and trade to us, so we'd have to offer something like 7 years 10.5 per year. Takes him to 35. That's market value for a guy like Malkin. It'd be tough.
