The good news is that Malkin is openly saying he wants to be here this upcoming season 100% and I think the transfer agreement will get worked out.
The bad news is that his interview with the Russian Sport Express was terrible. Its obvious that he is already jealous of Crosby and there is going to be a problem. And that whole thing about how he is insisting that his contract provides equal ice time as Crosby isn't good. Maybe we should trade his rights to Minnesota for Gaborik and a decent player.
