There is no NHL maximum wage in the era.
Probably just because Hexal was asked what he missed this season from the group that lost to New York’s Rangers 3: 1 in the first round, he joked, “It would be great if there was more room for a hat.”
He does not understand that.
Penguins usually spend to their limit in a very successful era led by Malkin, Letang and the longtime captain Sydney Crosby. The “spend to win now” approach will not change with Fenway Sports Group signing checks after purchasing the club from Ron Berkeley and Hall of Fame Mario Lemio last fall.
However, the question is how much money the Penguins are willing to give away to the couple’s 35-year-old franchise icon less than two months after first joining the free agency.
Letang seemed to have barely lost a step. The defender will spend the season in which he scored a career record of 68 points, playing with a little more responsibility towards the end. He showed an amazing 25:47 ice time on average and said he would like to play for at least five more seasons last week.
Malkin feels similar, but his situation is more complicated. “Good players sign good contracts,” he said last week, and although he has scored 20 goals this season despite recovering from a right-knee rupture in the ACL this season, he has not been particularly effective in a 5 to 5 run. $ 9.5 million. He is also 36 years old in July and has missed at least 10 injuries in the last 10 seasons.
Hextal emphasized that he would not provide details of the nature of the team’s talks with Malkin and Letang, but hinted that he was not worried about their age.
“They’re both great athletes,” he said. “They have both been here for a long time. They are both currently working at a high level. We would definitely like to get them involved in September. ”
