True. That's because fans are only willing to trade what they are willing to waive.

If you go to Pitts forum and ask for Malkin in return for Staal, Girardi, Dubi and Zherdev (none of whom are overpaid), their response won't be, "these are 4 excellent players, so let's see how they stack up against Malkin".

No, I can GUARANTEE you that they will say, "Why would we want to trade Malkin? Go away. You are stupid. All Ranger fans are morons. We hate all of you."

What they want is to unite the Staal brothers by getting ours for some overpaid player, a third pairing dman and a second round pick. Always a second round pick.

(I think it's part of HF Terms of Service to always include a second round pick in every offer you make.)
