Well, the problem with that comes down to money. Roy + Pominville make $9.3 million combined moving forward against Malkin's $8.7 million.

If Pitt was genuinely interested in moving Malkin, you're looking at Roy + prospects, depth players and/or picks, and the Sabres would then still need dump Poms to free up the salary space.
