Ryan Malone was awarded a two-year deal valued at $2.75 million - $1.3 for this season and $1.45 for next season.
This is not so drastic in terms of salary, when compared with the $5 million that Briere and Gomez were awarded in recent days. Obviously, Malone is no Briere or Gomez, but his $1.3 for this season looks like a downright bargain compared to those two.
The Pens have 48 hours to decide whether to accept it or make Ryan an unrestricted free agent. If it were me, I'd accept it. It seems to fit in well with the salary structure on this team. It really will come down to how much Ray Shero likes Ryan Malone as a player.
