Malkin may be awesome, but unless we really think he's Forsberg then No way give up Tyutin.

The Rangers and Pens had a deal in place if the Pens had secured the top pick in the upcoming draft. Names bandied about were Lundmark, Umberger and Ortmeyer, along with the #6 pick and possibly a 2nd rounder.

I would do this minus the 2nd.
They would want Green and Ortmeyer because they are cheap and young and play hard and are likely better than the likes of Eastwood and Buchberger. Also Nicklas Sundstrom was once untouchable, think about that...
