Yeah. That's all clear to me and I agree. I've just been playing with the idea ever since it became known that teams could use 2 compliance buyouts. I mean does anyone think it hasn't crossed Sather's mind, also? If I as a fan overseas am thinking about it, he's aware of it also, not?

It's a huge longshot, I know, but as long as he's not signed, he's scheduled to become a UFA. I'm not saying Glen should plan the future of the team on the hypothesis that Malkin might become available, just saying it's a scenario worth discussing as long as it's possible.
