Default Re: Should the Pens consider trading Malkin?

I brought this up a couple years ago right before Malkin signed his new contract. I read an article about us getting Dustin Brown and Jack Johnson AND a first (which was used on Drew Doughty).

If Malkin didnt want to play second fiddle to Crosby he wouldnt of accepted a contract extention like that.

He would of said 'see ya later' and would signed for a butt load else where... (ironically probably LA).

Malkin doesnt strike me as someone who could be the 'face' of a franchise. Skill wise, he is as talented as anyone else in this league, but something just seems missing. Maybe its his english, but i dont quite see him being put in charge of a franchise.

You think he wants to be a 3rd liner forever?
dont know how many 3rd line centers play nearly 20 minutes a game. Nik Backstrom, only played 45 more seconds per game as the Capitals FIRST Line Center.
