Why trade out of #2, when they can get what they need right there?

Again, quantity, no matter the position, or likely role a player will take is absolutely no issue for Pittsburgh. They are looking for a #1 center.
I dont think the only thing we are lacking is a top end center. I think we are lacking top end wingers as well.
The question is, do you feel Radulov will be a top end winger? I think he will be on par with Surovy as far as sniper potential. I wouldn't do the deal simply because Malkin fills a need that the Radulov package does not.
But i also think we lack first line wingers as well.
