His next contract willowy likely take him out of his prime (I'm sure he'll still be elite) but why does all that warrant a raise of 13%. Which btw I consider substantial, I never get 13% raises
If you understand how it works why are you saying that he shouldn't be asking for that and saying you can't believe the audacity of Malkin to ask for that?

As far as the raise being substantial, obviously we are a talking about this in terms of NHL raises, not raises for you and I. In the world of the NHL, getting $1.3 million more, especially when you are the #2 player in the world, is not what I would call substantial.
