from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated, Where it gets interesting is when Papa Malkin says that another team, the Dallas Stars, offered his son a contract. “You know, Dallas offered him a greater deal than the Pittsburgh. And he said, ‘No, I do not want to go there.’ The Stars had signed Sergei Gonchar. His best friend is out there playing. Why not agree? “And Geno said he wasn’t torn about not going to Dallas. He didn’t want to change houses. ‘I’m used to Pittsburgh, the city and the team,’ he said.” Now the thing is, this has to be some kind of misunderstanding. Malkin is currently under contract with the Penguins, and the eight-year, $76 million extension he signed this summer kicks in after next season. So there wasn’t a window during which the Stars could legally have talked to Malkin, let alone offered him a contract. more
