It's not like Couts shutting down Malkin came out of nowhere, it was the cherry on top of a fantastic defensive year. Trading him away for Subban makes this team worse defensively, and I doubt we can afford that. Sure, we'd get more offense from the blue line but that should currently be a secondary concern.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
