Drafted second overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2004, Evgeni Malkin has won three Stanley Cups, a Calder Trophy, a Conn Smythe, a Hart Trophy, and two Art Ross Trophies with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The moral of the story, Evgeni Malkin had a hall of fame career for 16 years in Pittsburgh.

For the first time in his historic career, he will hit free agency and hit the open market. Let's look at the most likely landing spots and the Evgeni Malkin next team odds.

Pittsburgh Penguins +220 (Bet $100 to win $220)

Just because Evgeni Malkin wants to test the waters, doesn't mean that he is definitely leaving the Penguins. It would be so hard to see Malkin finish his career away from Sidney Crosby and the Penguins. Supposedly the term of the deal is what is keeping these two sides apart right now.

Although, despite being the favorites I will say that the extension to Rickard Rakell, five years $25 million ($5 million AAV) may complicate things when it comes to remaining under the cap.

New York Rangers +900 (Bet $100 to win $900)

They're a little further down on the odds list but this move would be so Rangers it's almost too obvious. Mark Messier, Wayne Gretzky, Jaromir Jagr, Martin St. Louis, etc. all played with the Rangers towards the end of their career. They love the former legend route.

Plus, it's been reported that the Rangers are unlikely to retain Andrew Copp so they could use another center behind Mike Zibanejad in this lineup. Malkin, even at his age, would be a very solid second-line center for a team that is looking for veteran experience with a winning pedigree.
