After one whole day, Evgeni Malkin finally spoke to the press so the Beaver County Times can call off it's goons.
Here is the video via the Pens:
Malkin talked about how great it is to be back in Pittsburgh. Pretty boring interview. Sounds like Guy Junker asked a question that Malkin didn't understand. We didn't hear any whiny babies in the background so we assume the Beaver County Times guy had to go to work probably cleaning streets somewhere and couldn't make the interview.
BEST OF MAXIM
Evgeni Malkin's first media availability since returning from the KHL:
Tomas Vokoun hadn't been a backup goaltender for more than a decade before he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins last spring.
Considering how busy Vokoun might be during the NHL's cramped 48-game schedule, the job might not feel like a second-string job anyway.
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma says he plans to use Vokoun liberally during the season so as not to put too heavy...

The headaches are gone. Finally. So are the doubts, the ones Sidney Crosby couldn't outrun as he rehabilitated from concussion-like symptoms that robbed hockey's best player from two years in the middle of his prime.
It's no fun waking up the morning after a punishing workout and have your mind immediately drift to whether or not you'll end the day in a quiet room...
poll by twiigs.com
Forty-seven percent of voters believe Chris Kunitz should skate with Sidney Crosby and Pascal Dupuis. The number had been as high as 53 percent. The drop in the overall percentage is reflected in a jump for the option of using Kunitz on Crosbyâs line sometimes and sometimes on Evgeni Malkinâs. That option moved up from 14 percent...

A conundrum, if you will...
If the Penguins have one major question mark heading into this season, it’s what the team brings back on the blueline. Kris Letang, Paul Martin and Brooks Oprik were 1-2-3 in terms of minutes per game among Pens defensemen last year and they all return. The trade of Zbynek Michalek back to Phoenix bumps Matt Niskanen into the top...
We've got some bigtime news at PSAMP. A local favorite, and I mean "local" in the weirdest sense of the word, has returned to bless the Penguins with a few wishes of his own. You know, I was so close to accepting a lost NHL season that the recent end to the lockout and imminent start to Pens season has me so fired up that I felt I needed to do something big.
With the start of the 2012-13 NHL season finally here, TSN has unveiled the National Hockey League's Top 50 players as selected by a panel of experts. And for the third year in a row, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is on top of the list.

“I knew exactly what I was signing myself up for. This wasn‘t about being the starting goalie or statistics. This was about the bigger picture. I wanted to come somewhere that had a winning environment. I probably had better individual opportunities with other teams, but this was the place for me. This is a place where you can win.”
