Well XT and Shaun, this is what we have been waiting for. Oh yeah.....

Malkin to sign with Penguins tomorrow
Monday, September 04, 2006

By Dave Molinari, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Penguins and Russian center Evgeni Malkin have agreed on all but the final few details of an entry-level contract.

The deal covers three years, as mandated by the NHL's collective bargaining agreement, and will feature a base salary of $984,200. That is the maximium for a player drafted in 2004, when the Penguins claimed Malkin with the second choice in the entry draft.

Malkin's package is expected to include a collection of performance- and award-based bonuses that could be worth over $2.5 million, depending on how many he reaches.

Malkin, who left his Russian Super League team last month while it was training in Finland, has spend the past few weeks in Los Angeles. He is expected to sign his contract before a press conference tomorrow morning at Mellon Arena and will be present for the start of the team's rookie camp Thursday.

It remains to be seen if Malkin's Russian team, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, will take legal action to prevent him from playing in North America. Magnitogorsk has threatened to do so, contending it has a valid contract with Malkin.

They had a picture of Malkin walking inside the airport in Pittsburgh sporting an Iron city beer shirt. Wait until he drinks it for the first time...

It's official: Penguins sign Russian star Malkin

It's finally official -- Evgeni Malkin is a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.


Evgeni Malkin has spent the past few weeks practicing in El Segundo, Calif.
General manager Ray Shero announced Tuesday that the team signed the second overall pick in the 2004 draft to a deal, just two days before the start of the Penguins' rookie training camp. The team made quick work to post the news on the Internet, updating their Web site's home page with an image of a sprawling Malkin under a banner headline bearing his name.

I just got the email notice from the Pens and I'm thrilled! Welcome, Evegni - we Pens fans are very happy campers to have you on board!

Now - will the season hurry up and start? I can't wait to watch this kid perform on the ice!

You won't see them on the same line together unless we are on the PP. My prediction and what I feel should happen......Therrien will split them up and make two lines.

First of all, I haven't stopped smiling since I heard the news! I'm so glad he's signed and can't wait for the season to start!

As for the lines, Therrien will definitely split them up and make 2 lines, probably like this:

Recchi-Crosby-Armstrong
Ekman-Malkin-Malone

OR

Ekman-Crosby-Armstrong
LeClair-Malkin-Recchi

Either setup would be fine with me...
