Signed, sealed, and delivered!

Penguins fans got the news we had all been waiting for today... the Pens officially signed Evgeni Malkin. He flew into town last night and had dinner with Mario, and then had an informal skate with Sidney this morning. I can't wait to see this guy play! The Penguins are quietly putting together one of the most talented and exciting teams in the league. Shero has added a nice touch of toughness to the roster too. I feel safe in predicting that the Pens will be legit Cup contenders in 3 years. Hopefully they can trade Mark Recchi again this year for something decent (although word is that he patched things up with Sid.)
