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
"Hey, Columbus fan base, we could get the best player in the NHL, all we'd have to do is give up Jack Johnson"

"NO! JACK JOHNSON IS OUR SYMBOL OF FREEDOM OF THE JEFF CARTER TRADE!"

Cutting off one's nose to spite one's face comes to one's mind.
