Habs should go after Evgeni Malkin

So I was looking at our roster yesterday and I noticed we are terribly lacking star power. I also noticed we don't have depth at center and that winning teams usually have an incredible first line center. That's when I realized, how can Pittsburgh possibly keep both Crosby and Malkin ? Based on this new hypothesis, I thought that the Habs should go after Evgeni Malkin. We could also ship the Kostitsyn Brothers, maybe Plekanec and some prospects. I see no reason why we shouldn't:

1) He's very good !
2) We need centers
3) He's Russian and we could have a Kostitsyn - Malkin - Kovalev line
4) He's young

Only disadvantage I see is that he's a left-handed shot, but I think we could find a way to find another right-handed center in the future. So, what do you guys think ? Should Bob possibly think going after Malkin? I think he can help us...
