Not sure if serious.
Malkin either wants to be in Pittsburgh or he doesn't. If you have to bend over backwards to make ANYONE "happy" through linemates in this situation, they don't really want to be there, and you're better off without them (I don't believe Malkin actually feels that way).
Second, Malkin has the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th best winger on the team. I guarantee you his line doesn't magically get fixed by moving this current incarnation of Kunitz onto the line.
Finally, let's assume that I'm wrong and you're right and you need to placate superstars. The message you're sending is that we'll sign you for 12 years, then once we have you tied down, we'll prioritize other people's happiness above yours?
