You can rant all you like, but reality will set in by Thanksgiving if he comes back. Malkin will eventually be at wing because he is simply a much, much better winger than Staal, period.
I think you are grossly missing the point. It's not about me or anyone "ranting", it's about priorities and making tough decisions. I would be severely disappointed if your scenario happens, which would mean mine follows it. I'm 90% convinced, Malkin leaves if he's forced to play wing.
