In three years the Pens will be beginning the rebuild. Contract is front loaded and no NTC/NMC in the last three years. If he's not broken down, he'll be easy to trade. If he isn't his cap hit won't matter.

He is also the perfect type of older guy to keep around. A guy that played his way into a first line winger role and works his bag off.

What's worse - me not thinking he's some elite RWer or thinking he won't be a 20 point player in two years...? haha

It's so hard to balance the entire internet...

We have about three years left as outsiders for the Cup. Then we will be quite bad anyway. So it doesn't matter so much if we have some overpaid players a few years after that. This is why I can give a player such as Letang a five year contract if he wants to and/or it reduces his cap hit.

The value of the Rust contract is great as long as Crosby is playing.

My only small concern is that it could prevent us from signing Letang, Malkin or the not likely signing Johnny hockey.

I wouldn't have mind resigning Rakell since he is younger than Rust, but at the same cap hit, Rust is probably the better player the next three years.

It all hinges on what Geno wants. He needs to remember that, for the last 12 years, he's been the Penguins' highest paid player.

I seem to remember an article a coule of years ago where Geno's wife said something to the effect of "She'd rather he be a star center somewhere else but felt he'd never leave the Burgh". If true, I wonder how much of that would come into play ? Happy wife...happy life scenario.

Don't Russian's love Florida because of the tax laws there? I thought that was always true.
