How so? It's elite talent for elite talent. You have to consider how EA has rated them and not what players are like in real life.

Malkin is tied for fourth-best forward and Phaneuf is tied for fifth-best defenceman. Pittsburgh was deep on F and I was deep on D. The upgrade to Kessel is the added incentive to Grabovski, 1st and Blacker. Then when you consider that Vokoun is 36 and will be 80-82 OVR after two seasons, it's fair all around.
