The Isles are building their own team, we probably won't have an elite player for a while but I like the identity we have and the direction. This is no slight to Malkin, he's world class, but this proposal is ridiculous and I am glad it would never, ever happen.

The Islanders have such a history of trading for top talent and saying goodbye to great players. Malkin is above the level of those other trades of course, but still, I am sick of it. We are building a good team here, we are not throwing out every step of progress for one guy.
That about says it all right there, folks.
