You don't manage a professional franchise that way.

I agree that it'd be dumb to sign a pick before the new CBA comes out. That said, I also know that the Penguins know that no matter what is in the new CBA, they are still in financial ruin. They would maximize the returns no matter what by getting 3-4 players (or picks - not saying the Rangers are getting him) for the price of 1 player.

This is a business. The Product in Pittsburgh at this time is not relevant. They simply want the cheapest overhead. Ovechkin does not fit into that.
