Malkin is going to be a good one, but why trade one of your better prospects(jessiman), a #6 overall draft pick(could be olesz by the way he is dropping), another #1, and murray. To be honest, it would prob take something like that to move the #2 pick to the rangers and I would not do it from their standpoint. The pens system lacks that #1 center and has quality depth overall through out their system. I think the would have trouble dealing the pick even if such an offer was presented.
All in all, I think it fits both teams to not trade with each other. If the rangers think high enough of barker, they could move up to #4 and pick him. However, I dont see much movement in the top 8 this year and I think the Pens(#2) and Rangers(#6) will stay point.
