Crosby & Malkin have all the makings of a Sakic & Forsberg center combo. I can't wait to see them in action.
Malkin should do well - of course we will see - bob grove (pens Q&A) states that the Russian leagues ratified the paperwork - and they are just waiting for the final stamp.....
I'm just glad crosby and AO are in the east. I'm tired of the west and philly gobbling up everyone.
