He won't leave. I can't see that happening.

Seriously, what are the odds Malkin gets to FA? Malkin is one of only 3 or 4 players in the league that are worth 10 Million+

Does he want to re-sign in PIT or go somewhere and be the guy? I'm not sure he'll leave the Penguins but if he does he's the guy we need to throw a ton of money for.

i'd be wary of handing out tons of dough and committing long-term to a UFA russian with some injury history. obviously he's one of the best players in the game today, but the long run risk/reward isn't as great as most people would think.

Sometimes I wonder if we replaced both[Gabby&BR] with slightly lesser named guys...but who had better work habits....we might be better off offensively and possibly a lot harder to play against ?

What does him being Russian have to do with anything? He plays a very North American style of game. He's the 2nd best player in the world today. And pretty much every player in the league has some injury history.

The KHL offered Kovalchuk a great deal too. He stayed.

The NHL won't let Malkin leave. He is one of the three best players in the league.

If I were NYR, and Malkin made it to UFA at the end of next season, I would offer ten years, 95 million dollars. Would coincide with Gaborik's contract expiring, Richards possible buyout, and a bunch of other contract ends.

Kreider-Malkin-Nash
Hagelin-Stepan-Callahan
Miller-Lindberg-Fast
x-x-x

That is a scary top 9 if Kreider and Fast reach their potential

Can't offer 10 years though, 8 year limit and 7 for signing with a new team. Pittsburgh won't sign and trade to us, so we'd have to offer something like 7 years 10.5 per year. Takes him to 35. That's market value for a guy like Malkin. It'd be tough.

I'd be very, very surprised to see Malkin hit UFA. The Pens aren't going to want to lose him, they'll offer him an absurd contract. Say what you will about being "the guy" but that team wins and is set to win for a long time with him and Sid. I doubt wanting to be "the guy" overshadows the desire to win.

Getz is out and now people need a new unrealistic guy in their sights to justify getting rid of whoever they don't like on NYR currently.

It's just throwing out an idea. If Malkin hits UFA, he could have the highest cap hit in NHL history

We can only offer 7 years.

Would not play Malkin with Nash.

Both are more effective with the puck on their stick. I'd put Callahan with Malkin - I honestly think he could turn Cally into a 35 goal scorer. Callahan has good hands around the net, and Malkin gets the puck to the net.

Renew the contract towards the end if anything or immediately sign again. He isn't leaving NHL.

7yrs 70mil is perfectly fine for a talent like Malkin.

What if the KHL offers 15 Million a season...just throwing that out there . What did they give Radulov...who could not carry Malkin's jock ? They really will be going after him IMO . He already has a Cup...and the way things are these days...winning the 2nd one is a lot harder and from the looks of that Penguin team...they are a long ways from another one . He will head home for the dough .

Rangers should make a run at Injured Stephen Weiss. Find a way to trade for his rights without using a roster player and have him ready to go for next season. Solidifies the middle in a big way for next season. Makes Richards buyout more realistic, get him for cheaper than if he were playing this season.

No thanks, he's going to get in excess of $6M AAV on the open market. We have Richards, Stepan, and Miller at center. I'm happy with that group moving forward.

i could see Malkin getting 7 years and upwards of 80-90m. why should he take less than inferior players that hit the market the past couple of seasons?

I'm a big fan of Gaborik and I'd hate to see the guy go, but he's the odd man out here. Nash and Callahan are our top-six RW's, and keeping McDonagh, Stepan, and Hagelin while maintaining some semblance of cap flexibility is absolutely vital.

Good post and right on the money.

The way I see it, without the big star there we share it more and are urged to get it in at all costs rather than give it to them always

Look, every team needs it share of elite level talent(hate lumping Ritchie and Gabby into this category because they're not anymore) but honestly, we need to replace that type of talent with younger, bigger bodied types in order to be more competitive with some of the other teams(ex: Bruins, Pens, Devils, etcetera)

Ummm... how about we pull off the miracle and sign Malkin before we worry about his potential line mates ;-)

First it was Drury and Gomez, then Redden, then Gaborik, then it was Richards, then Nash, now the savior is Malkin? How about we win with this team and stop worrying about the next big white hope?
