All the Malkin talk was already getting annoying.

Don't like that he's still with the Pens but at least all that talk will die.

If anyone is worth it, Malkin would be one of those players. Anyways, with the revenues going up and up the cap will be larger beyond next year's artificially low ceiling.

There's no way they can keep Letang now.

Thanks to the Penguins for just being out with it with the contract details instead making people work to have one of the 'sources' leak the info and wasting everyone's time.

I heard from the folk here that Malkin will be requesting a trade by the end of the week.

He could be extended today?


What's the rule since he was only UFA next summer?

Pretty much what one would expect him to get. A lot of money tied up in two forwards will be interesting to see how the Pens adjust down the road.

Nothing's changed really. Sid & Geno's cap hits are about the same as they've been for 5 years.

They can. It's just a matter of if they think he's worth it and want to keep him at whatever his asking price is. Pens have Murray coming off the books this year, Orpik and Niskanen coming off the books next year and a very deep prospect pool of D-Men to replace those guys on the cheap and pay Letang.

They have agreed a deal. Doesn't become official until next month.

Couldn't not do it, but 18.2 mill in cap space for 2 players. Two best players in the world, but what does that do for their depth going forward?

But seriously does Geno even want to play on the same team as Crosby? I don't think they like each other

Well done Shero and Geno! Good loyal player

You can't win the Cup with a deep prospect pool of defenseman.

If the Pens have 3 rookies on their top 6D, they are essentially giving up on that season.
