Pittsburgh Penguins Feel They Are Close To Re-Signing Kris Letang, Evgeni Malkin Not So Much

from Mike DeFabo of the Pitsburgh Post-Gazette,

If all goes as planned, Penguins general manager Ron Hextall will return from the NHL Draft in Montreal with several shiny, new prospects — and at least one more piece of the core intact.

The Penguins general manager told reporters on Wednesday evening he believes a contract extension for defenseman Kris Letang will be finalized “real soon.”

“I'd be surprised if we don't get Kris done,” Hextall said....

When Hextall was asked if he’s confident he’ll get something done with Malkin, the GM replied, “I can't say that. I don't know that. We're still working. I spoke with him as recently as last night [Tuesday night]. We'll see where it goes.”
