    PENGUINS INK MALKIN TO FIVE-YEAR EXTENSION

    The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed Evgeni Malkin to a five year contract extension.

    The extension mirrors the one signed by Penguins captain Sidney Crosby in July of 2007, a five-year deal averaging $8.7 million.

    Malkin, 21, emerged as an NHL superstar in his second season, finishing second in the league with 106 points before adding 22 points in 20 playoff games and has one season remaining on his current contract, so the extension would take effect in the 2009-2010 season.

    That means that the duo of Crosby and Malkin are both going to be under contract with the Penguins through 2013.


    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    1.15 Georgia ILB Roquan Smith 6'0" 225
    2.60 Stanford FS Justin Reid 6'1" 204

    Now if the Pens can get Orpik to stay in the fold, they'll be in clover. Wrapping up Malkin was absolutely necessary and along with signing Dupuis, the Pens are committing to a lot of youth with plenty of upside and lots of room to grow.
