Of coarse Malkin will likely re-sign with Pit
but if by any chance he doesn't want to play second fiddle to Crosby.
I have to belive that MB relationship would give him a chance to get is foot in the door and if wasn't for the taxes in Qc it might give us the inside track to sign a these big time UFA players even if basically every team will be offering the maxium $$$.

Signing Malkin would automatically make Mtl a contender for years to come, and make Mtl attractive to other players... it won't happen but we can dream
Not so fast. I've said it before. The Habs are getting better, and we will be attractive to UFAs in summer 2014.
