When making a Malkin proposal you need to ask yourself a few questions about it and if the answer is 'no' to any of them it's probably not gonna work:

1 - Does it fill Pittsburgh's needs? - Kinda, but Hemmer's always hurt and the Pens don't need a small center.

2 - Is the other team's best player/asset involved? - Nope, not even EDM's 2nd best player is involved or their 1st rounder this year, which has more value than anything involved in this deal IMO.

3 - Is the deal better than what other teams would offer for Malkin? - Hell no. Pens would get much better offers for Malkin.

As you can see you get two hard "No's" and a "maybe". Not enough for Malkin.
