No GM in their right mind would think as you are in the above statement. Including Detroits'.
Yes, because clearly the thoughts of fans are crystal clear reflections of their favourite teams management. Its because this is HF, where people think its a good deal to trade anyone over 30 for some of Crosby's baby batter. As long as Detroit has their current cast, they will always be cup favourites. So to disrupt the team chemistry to add a player that doesn't fit the system as well (not to mention trade away two beauty contracts), just to get younger makes no sense for the Wings. So while you and the rest of HF sit and debate what country would have to be offered to get Malkin, Detroits just gonna keep winning cups if thats allright with you.

PS I'm not even a Wings fan, but I have huge respect for well run organizations and Detroit is the definition. And thats why they would not make this deal.
