    He will rock the AHL next year. Believe me.

    Actually, he reminds me so much of Michael Peca. He's his clone. Not a "poor man" Michael Peca, he has the skills to captain a team.

    For $400,000 I heard.

    hmmm, and here I thought that the Pens were so poor that they served the players bread and water and that Craig Patrick drove them to games on the back of his bicycle (gas prices being what they are). Hopefully this will stop the talk that I have heard that the Pens can not sign Malkin. Also shows I think that they had the funds, not limitless, but enough to field a more costly team than they did last year (or as they did 2 years ago with a significantly higher payroll), but were following a strategy of shedding as much 'Cap room' as possible in anticipation of the changes next year. May pay off, may not, but the Pens who averaged something approaching 13,000 fans a game the last three years (11,500 last year) are not hurting as everyone seems to always say. Need a new arena? Sure, but listen to the sports talk shows, I have the past few days, and hockey talk still dominates far more of the show even into memorial day than it likely does in almost any non-canadian hockey town.

    Great for Pittsburgh. I always hated it when Gatineau came to town because Talbot is such a good player. He makes his linemates better and he can really carry a team.

    Now trade him to Jersey for...the rights to Tommy Albelin and some Bon Jovi tickets.

    I thought someone on the board said it was around $450,000/year and that was if he played in the NHL.

    RDS just talked about it.
    He had a signing bonus of 400,000 and a 450,000/year contract.
