Darren Dreger from TSN is reporting that Evgeni Malkin is ready to agree to a contract extension with the Pittsburgh Penguins that will be similar to Crosby's deal. The deal is reported to be a five year deal averaging $8.5 million. Defenseman Mark Eaton(two years, $2 million) and forward Pascal Dupuis(three years, $4.2 million) have also signed deals to remain with the team. I hope Orpik and Hossa can also come to terms soon as I think both men are important members of this roster and hopefully won't cost too much on the cap to help fill holes in free agency left by Roberts and Malone.
