Oh absolutely it is a ton of money and I am not convinced the Pens will sign him for that. All I am saying is that as one of the truly elite dominant players in the NHL, who is already makeing $8.7 million, a raise to $10 million is not unreasonable. I think Malkin knows he is likely pricing himself out of Pittsburgh, and I don't think he cares. He wants to be paid and I think someone will give him what he wants.
