Sometimes it's about chemistry that makes the PP work, sometimes talent and more often than not, a mixture of both.

Don't get me wrong, I'd like Malkin here but with his cap hit and what we will have to pay Weber, that's a lot of money tied up in two guys for a long time.
At some point, we're going to have to get real 1st line talent in here to have a chance of making playoff noise. And 1st line talent is probably going to cost money, unless we get a couple Ovechkins on entry level deals. We do have the money to spend, but we'll have to shed some of the big money we're paying to 2nd-3rd tier guys.

The problem with Pittsburgh PP is they have 3 quarterbacks. Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. The problem with us is we have NO PP quaterback. I think Malkin-Weber-Hornquist would have the making of a great PP. Quarterback-Best Point Shot in League-Amazing Net presence. But yeah, you don't know until you see it.

But, the point is probably moot. #1) Pittsburgh is still unlikely to trade Malkin. #2) Poile makes a good trade every 1 in 8 years. #3) Pittsburgh would probably want Weber back in the deal.
