The only team I seriously see entertaining a trade proposal would be Columbus. Washington and Pittsburgh are desperately short on talent (like the Rangers), Chicago has some reasonable prospects/young players, but is a bit short on defensive prospects (other than Babchuk) and Phoenix could use some depth too.

Columbus by contrast has a goalie: Leclaire....two potential super star forwards in Nash and Zherdev, and probably won't get a shot at Barker, which means they could trade down and still get Thelen.

So in summary, I don't see we have a shot at Malkin...probably could get our choice of Ladd, Tukkonen or Olesz if the Rangers wanted to trade up, but you probably are going to get a choice of at least one of those at 6 anyway.
