EDIT: Oh yeah, like what Le Magnifique 66 said, we cleared space to get Parise and Suter, failed to do so, found out the Cap was decreasing in the new CBA, Pens don't have to do as much cap work as they would have if they kept Michalek.
That's a stupid reason to trade an effective player. We could have tried to sign both and if it worked out, traded Michalek over the summer. And, we could trade Michalek after this season if it was about cap space for Malkin/Letang.
