How about taking some time and reading through it first and consider what is being said rather than flying off the handle in an emotional snit and responding to something that's never been suggested?

Again, don't know how to respond without being a bitch.

Trying to change my ways, but damn if you aren't making it hard.

OK it's dumb to point out that the Pens are tying up a helluva lot of money at one position?

It's dumb to point out that in a salary cap driven league using so much money at any one position could prove detrimental to other positions of near equal importance?

It's dumb to point out that a logjam at center could stifle the growth of one of the best young players on the team?

It's dumb to point out that a young superstar might not want to always be the second banana on his team?

Look I understand how great Malkin is, I understand how hard it would be to get near equal value in return. But I also undertand the nature of sports and the nature of elite athletes. I also understand that Eastern European players can be tempermental, what's good for them today isn't neccessarily going to be to their liking a couple years down the road.

And I also understand it's best to sell when it's on your terms and your hand isn't being forced. I remember the Jagr trade, and what all proceeded it and went into it, maybe most of you don't?

Again any trade of Malkin would have to be for a very good package, no firesale is being requested here. And if the right deal isn't out there I'm fine with that too. I'm doing nothing more than bringing up the possibility if there was a way that it could be done to the overall long term benifit of the team. That's all.

Geez.

Wow, the Pens don't make a conference final for once, and we're already calling to blow up the team. Eh, that's Pittsburgh for us. Lose and it's time to fire everyone.

You have no idea what I suggested or why so better not to comment on it.

Geez.
It's not dumb to point out any of that, but there's an awful lot of assumptions being made. Again, there's no indication that Malkin would be happier being the big kahuna rather than "that other guy." Not only that, as has been pointed out, why would he have signed the identical deal that Crosby had signed the year before, especially when at the time, a KHL team (I believe it was his hometown team in Magnitogorsk) offered him $11 million a year? If he really wanted to be "the guy," he'd have taken that KHL deal. The fact that he didn't speaks volumes. Plus, let's not forget that he and Crosby have the same agent, J.P. Barry, who also happens to represent Sergei Gonchar. Don't think that doesn't have a major impact on what Malkin does.

Bottom line is that the Penguins will not trade Malkin, they will make every attempt to re-sign him before his contract is up in 2014, and I think eventually Staal will move to wing as people had hinted at before he was even drafted.
