All of these trade Girardi and Gaborik ideas are almost ridiculous. They aren't going anywhere.
Sharp is solid now and still has upside.
We can wait and see if Gabs regains his scoring touch.

Or we can hope the Pens will finally realize that putting too much in one basket is not a good idea, and keeping Crosby they'll move Malkin --- although that scenario is complicated both by the fact that they don't want to rush on Crosby's concussion, so nothing is happening right away, and even if it was, NYR could theoretically overpay to get Malkin, but Pens more likely to go not just outside division, but outside conference (all things being equal, which they may or may not be in any given trade scenario). So Gaborik is not going for Malkin.

If you move him, what do you think you can get for him, and from which club?

Sharp + the upgrade less what extra has to be thrown in is another really good C, bottom line, and I think that's still a net +.
