7 years at $63m.

One thing that should be noted though is that Malkin was quoted as saying that he'd be willing to take a discount if it helped the team.
UH right... In the real world, NHL GMs overpay every year and a guy like Malkin deserves it, unlike most UFAs. He will get paid and there won't be a shortage of GMs lining up to do so.
If I'm Eugene, I hope to go elsewhere. He won't always get his due in PIT.
He will get his ~10m/yr.
