Because Michalek-Wisniewski is clearly a killer defense pairing that'll make the likes of Datsyuk, Toews, Backes, Hossa, and Zetterberg tremble, right?

Any "Nash and the 2nd overall together" deal has to make us an immediate playoff contender, or else we've screwed our asset management hardcore. Throwing in JMFJ makes it even worse. Malkin is several different kinds of epic-level awesome, but can he singlehandedly put us in the playoffs under those circumstances?

Didn't think so.

It's lose-lose.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
