Not sure if Malone is the answer. Lets not forget the guys numbers come from playing with Crosby and Malkin.
I like the guy, but the price will be too high.
The Rangers need a guy who can compliment Gomez for that type of $$$, and this isn't the player IMO.
If he came cheap I'd love to have him with Dubinsky, but let's not kid ourselves... hes a FA.
I agree 100%. Malone to me, while the size and grit would be great, reminds me of Kevin Stevens (shivver). Great with Mario, no where near the same everywhere else and rightfully so. Malone has put up 'ok' (not stellar) points with some of the best in crosby and Malkin. So if he is playing with people of lesser ability, his production will drop significantly.
I would love to have Malone on our team but not at the price he'll be asking. He's the type of player that would become a fan favorite here- he shows a lot of heart, sticks up for teammates, and does a lot of dirty work.
