Pittsburgh Penguins

The Big Man Says Malkin Will Stay

TSN’s Bob McKenzie is reporting that, despite rumors suggesting that Pittsburgh is in talks with L.A. to send star forward Evgeni Malkin to the Kings for the 2nd overall pick, Malkin will not be moved on draft day.

This is a somewhat bold statement in light of the significant chatter right now that suggests Malkin might be moved to make room for accomodating Marian Hossa’s contract, a potential move that has been criticized by many pundits including Illegal Curve’s Richard Pollock.

McKenzie went on to say that he believes Alex Tanguay, Olli Jokinen, and Toronto’s Pavel Kubina are all very likely to be traded this weekend. The Kubina news surprised me, since I always thought an NHL team wasn’t allowed to trade a player to a minor league franchise. I’m not sure who else would be interested…..

For Illegal Curve, I’m Steve Werier.

The Jets have one final game day before the All-Star break as they take on a Blues team which are also mired in a slump.

The Moose set off on the road for three games after a win over the Marlies on Sunday.

The Ice return home after winning 2/3 on road.

ICYMI: The Moose won three of their last four including a big 3-2 win over the Marlies on Sunday afternoon.

But the victory may have been overshadowed by the 60th bday cerebration of the man known as Dancing Gabe.
