Partially true. I doubt anyone feels Malkin could be had in a trade (I know I don't). I used Malkin as someone who is oft debated on this forum to guage a relative value. Consensus seems to be that Detroit would need to throw in another good player to make the trade even on a value level. I couldn't care less whether or not people give Datsyuk or Kronwall extra adulation. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if a few threads for Zetterberg or Franzen (both impending UFAs) popped up as I have a feeling one of them won't be in Detroit next season.
