meaning i doubt CBJ would even consider moving him ... yes even for the almighty Malkin ...

we have went about a decade with one superstar and a bunch of grinders ... i don't think we would sacrifice any valuable assets to regress and tie up the franchise for another decade

i understand how amazing Geno is and love to watch him play ...

but i don't see it being possible here

i would rather keep our defense and get help in goal and at forward
And tbh I could not agree more with you. This often gets to caught up in insisting trades that neither fanbase wants are still fair value or not, when cases of everyone genuinly prefering what they have are awesome and people should recognize that.
