Evgeni Malkin's superiority to me regarding hockey begins with putting on skates. But I could not believe my weary eyes when I read that signing Malkin to a new long-term contract was the No. 1 priority for the Penguins!

Did Penguins general manager Ray Shero watch the playoffs? Of course he did, and closely. Yet, despite his obvious skill and intellect, Shero wishes to continue to pay Malkin to donate the puck to anyone in a non-Pens jersey?

Yes, Malkin is a force but, equally, a dedicated philanthropist where the puck is concerned.

OK, none of our big-time folks seemed to have the spark against Boston (and Boston had a bunch to do with that), but Malkin stood out, to me, as one who fizzled brilliantly.

I don't get it.
