NHL Notes: Lindback, Malkin

Anders Lindback, who played in net for the Buffalo Sabres most recently, would like to remain in Buffalo according to a report by ProHockeyTalk.  The netminder, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, posted a .924 save percentage in 16 contests with the Sabres.

If any team has expressed interest in obtaining one of the best players in the world from the Pittsburgh Penguins via trade, that will almost certainly not happen.  As quoted in a recent ESPN article, Penguins' GM Jim Rutherford stated:
"We don’t have any interest in that," Rutherford told ESPN.com when asked about trading Malkin. "Our core players are Sid [Crosby] and Geno, and [Kris] Letang and [Marc-Andre] Fleury and [Patric] Hornqvist. And we feel very strong about that core. But we have to continue to have complementary pieces to those players in order to have a better chance to play into June."
Malkin signed an eight-year contract extension with Pittsburgh in 2013.
