Evgeni Malkin debut

Malkin will make his NHL debut on Wednesday night at home against the New Jersey Devils. He's been cleared to play by the Penguins medical staff.

I, for one, can't wait to watch him play. The Pens sure could use him.

What do you think this will do to the lines? Malkin obviously goes to center on the #2 line. Do you think Malone stays down on the 4th line, leaving Eckman and Leclair on the 2nd line with Malkin, or does Therrien do a reset and go back to the original Eckman-Crosby-Armstrong, Recchi-Malkin-Malone lineup? It will be interesting to say the least.

1) This will definitly be the most intersting game of the night. All eyes will be on Malkin
2) Will this translate into more room for Crosby, etc? Could be a tough 1-2 punch to deal with!

No idea what it'll do to the lines but I'm too excited to think about it anyway! This feels like the real opening night.
