Malkin signs extension

“We are very excited to have Evgeni signed to a long-term contract,” Pittsburgh MG Ray Shero said. “This is an important signing for our franchise and the city of Pittsburgh and we commend Evgeni on his commitment to the future of the franchise and the city. This signing continues to ensure the young core of this team can stay intact for years to come”.

It's a five-deal for $43.5-million, identical to the deal Sidney Crosby signed last year.

Well, after Hossa's departure this seems inevitable.

What does LA think of this deal?

Malkin > Hossa.

This was happening regardless of Hossa signing or not signing.

I would agree it was happening regardless, but Hossa leaving alleviated a lot of pressure from the terms of the contract. Malkin is better, particularly because he will be part of Pittsburgh's future, I don't understand why some fans have been so cursory into trading him.
