Some may disagree and feel receiving the best player means you come ahead in the deal, but in this case I think it would be a bad idea long-term.

I also think Eberle woul be the perfect compliment to Crosby, and then you'd have The Nuge with Neal and Kunitz. Very intriguing, but best left for a video game.
I agree with this.

Also, the o.p. wrote this...

"or do they trade him 1 year before he is set to become a UFA like they did with Jordan Staal?"

With all these proposals, I would never offer that much for a one years worth of Malkin. If you give up all the assets to get Malkin and then he leaves after a season, the team is screwed imo for a couple of years.
