This one might actually balance out, at a glance, at least. The other ones were likely all sending too much cap to Pittsburgh.

But practically speaking, as far as "now" is concerned, Gonchar/Markov is a lateral move. Thus, the only things they get in their lineup this year are Higgins/Pleky vs. Malkin. Not an upgrade for a team seeking a cup.
If Pittsburgh were rebuilding, this would work. They would need on ice assets equal or greater than Malkin, plus prospects to make up for his potential.

Well said, on the other hand i doubt we have anything that would be an upgrade for a team seeking a cup, in return for Malkin that is.
