Well.... there's a silver lining in this deal.

First. Malkin would probably pull a Carter and demand a trade.

Next, Columbus would probably get 50%-66% fair value for him.

After that the NHL would conclude that Columbus' roster is so much of a joke that most AHL teams could beat them... so with New Jersey having money issues the NHL could just shut both franchises down increasing the player depth on all teams around the NHL.

It would be the most awesome off-season ever!

There could be a lottery for who gets to pick first! That means Edmonton gets to pick first or second and then Montreal and New York Islanders would follow.

Man, imagine Edmonton getting their hands on Larsson or Kovalchuk. Maybe they'd even go with Zajac to secure that sure-fire 1-2 punch down the middle.

Man... what a wonderful dream... just like the opposite of this proposal.
