Fact is, Pitt has D prospects that actually fill what Edm is lacking in their D prospects, and Hemsky fills a need as a top 6 winger in Pitt. If he can stay healthy, which he looks to be right now, he's a great fit on a line with Malkin IMO.
Any reason besides Eastern European-ess that it would have to be Malkin?
