I kind of figured he'd get a deal like this, but $9.5 mil and he's somewhat injury prone. Plus, you're already committing $8.7 mil per year to another player who's even more injury prone. This top heavy, shootout, superstar team might do well in the regular season, but its proven it can't handle the playoffs. I'm not saying that they shouldn't have resigned Malkin, but I don't know if signing someone to a huge contract that eats up a bunch of cap space is a good idea when the cap's going down and your team has been exposed several times in the postseason as having a ton of holes and lack of depth. Letang's pretty much a goner and your blue line is already the weak point on the team. I keep reading Pens fans saying "Okay, let's go lock up Tanger long term. And then Duper and then Iginla. And then get Cooke back!". I'm like, "You know there's a salary cap right? And these guys aren't going to play for free" I'm soooo glad the Wings don't think like this and they would rather have a well balanced team.
