    Disgusting, goals in his first six games is off the charts. Most pundants are enamored with him, but the general populus still has Sid the Kid and Alexander the Great hangover as it pertains to rookies. Which, is kind of sad b/c this year's crop has some pretty stellar kids, including Malkin's teammate Jordan Stahl.

    I think he'll hit 100+ points, he is stronger and bigger than Ovechkin/Crosby, doesn't score quite as flashy goals which may be another reason not much attention, but nevertheless good goals. Him and Crosby make an amazing line that I think is going to be very productive....Playoffs?

    Unlike most Russian snipers, Malkin scores a lot of dirty, hard-working goals. Ovechkin and Kovalchuk both are better pure snipers, but Malkin will probably be a better playoff player b/c he is more willing to do pay the price for a gritty goal. I am not sure about 100+ pts, but I am damn sure he will score 40 if not 50 goals. I just hope that this team will be together for more than 5 years b/c they could be the new Oilers from the 80's.

    It will be tough to keep this team together for more then 5 years, especially with the unrestricted free agency and the salary cap, top that off with the lack of income for the Penguins.

    Crosby
    Malkin
    Staal
    Marc-andre Fleury.

    They won't be in Pittsburgh for too much longer, which is very unfortunate. I don't understand why there is such disregard for the Pens in Pittsburgh, but they seem to be the bastard team. It's not like they have been a hoorid team forever, either. Word around the league is that the new owner is going to move the team to Ontario, which automatically gives them a hockey rabid fan-base. I just hope that the league develops some sort of stipulation in the CBA about certain players not counting against the salary cap (e.g. each team could declare 1-2 players as franchise players for an exemption).

    I highly doubt they will be moving to Ontario anytime soon. Both Buffalo and Toronto have territory coverages over most of the metropolitian areas. So if they moved they would be paying crazy fees to the Sabres and/or the Leafs. With that said though, they could move to Kitchener/Waterloo, which is just outside of there controlled jursidiciton, and also the home of RIM (new owners of the Penguins) But I see that as highly unlikely. I know I for one would ditch being a leafs fan in a second.

    I like the idea about the franchise player. Hopefully they can continue to recover from the strike to be in a position to offer that the next CBA.

    They will not be moving to Kitchener. I recall hearing about that as well, but the owner of that company said a move to Kitchener/Waterloo is highly unlikely. Which sucks, b/c I am not far from there

    The team isn't moving anywhere(yet), Mario sold the team to some man who owns blackberry and the whole issue with the team is that they have a plan with Isle of Capri Casio's to build a new arena, with slots and such, and renovate the area around the arena(which is a poor mostly minority area). This would cost of the City nothing and more importantly the people of Pittsburgh nothing. There are roughly 3 competing organizations that are wanting these slots licenses(in Pittsburgh), and so far the actual governing body that is controlling who gets the Pittsburgh license is leaning towards one of the other people. In the Pittsburgh region people want this Isle of Capri to get the licensees so we can get a new arena. The pens have an awesome following in Pittsburgh, more so then the pirates and probably more loyal then the Steelers(since they're on a loosing road now Im sure a lot of ppl will focus on the pens). I went to a number of games last year and even when we were horrid, there was 12K-14K (sell out is 16.5K) worth of people at each game. Since we hold governor elections on Tuesday, we shall see what happens. The other candidate has openly supported the Isle of Capri Casinos plus he is a former steeler

    While the odds of them moving are so/so it probably wont happen. The current governor came up with another plan that still taxes the taxpayers but its better then nothing. My guess is that this will be one of those 11th hour deals and it will all work out in the end. Pittsburgh will still retain the penguins.


    As for malkin, well its friggen awsome, and I can't wait for us to destroy SJ tonight.

    he's fantastic but i was pissed because when i went to draft him in fantasy hockey he wasnt on the free agent list. that is, of course, not until after the draft and some one else already grabbed him.

    Yeah i saw that. The pens are going to stay here, there not going to move anywhere. The city is broke now if they lose a sports team there gona be in the hole even more. This past firday the line for student rush(a discount ticket for ppl with student id's) was wrapped all the way around the building. They have a huge fan base and have pretty much sold out for all of there home games.

    I don't see many penguins games to commet on him, I do love watching Anze Kopitar play. He's a rookie on the Kings that's doing as well as the as the other young stars.
