Obviously going by the interest generated on these boards and in print, whatever the Pens do or do not do will be pretty big. From Hossa to Malone to Orpik to whatever FA's they might pursue it will be an interesting next few weeks in Pittsburgh.

If they indeed do sign Hossa, and that reported $50 mil offer makes that a good possibility, they would be the winners of this offseason before it even began.

I have to agree with Jaded, what the Penguins do will affect the plans of most teams in the NHL. They have so many UFAs of their own, and in addition they would be a popular place for other UFAs to sign with.

No--I disagree. What makes pittsburgh attractive is Sid the Kid and Malkin with the amount of money about to be tied up in those two, signing UFA for the money they want--could be hard. pittsburgh suffers from the same affliction the city of Edmonton does---I am am from Edmononton and I have been to Pitts---but that is a discussion for another board.

Question--Why is it hard for the Pens to Sign Malone?

It's not hard...it's priorities. He wants 5 million dollars and he's not a 5 million dollar player. With the Pens salary structure they have no wiggle room to overpay for players. Malone clearly believes he is worth more than his game suggests and with the Pens making a run at Hossa, it's an upgrade over Ryan Malone.

Because he wants 4.5 million or more, and they aren't going to overpay for him.
