Penguins general manager Ray Shero has been a busy man the past few days. He agreed to an eight-year, $76 million extension with center Evgeni Malkin yesterday and signed head coach Dan Bylsma to a two-year extension the day before that. No, he did not sign any player or coach today, but he did receive a big honor by being named the NHL’s general manager of the year. Shero received...

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman offered a bullish assessment of the NHL's financial health during his "State of the Game" speech on Wednesday, and, in an analysis of Evgeni Malkin's contract, the Globe and Mail's James Mirtle suggests that the NHL's revenues are likely to continue climbing to the extent that the salary cap is going to stabilize for a few years...
