On Ponikarovsky, he's a good complementary player. However, I wouldn't expect him to suddenly start lighting the lamp consistently even if playing with Malkin. He runs hot and cold, and doesn't strike me as the type of player who would thrive when the goal-scoring spotlight would start to shine brightly upon him.
Lastly, I know our record when selecting in the second round is poor, but that's an awful reason to include a 2010 second rounder in every single trade proposal out there. I'd rather keep that pick this year and begin the process of reversing our second-round curse.
