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?

Ya I do think u need to and should bend over backwards to make your superstars happy. Losing malkin would hurt this franchise in so many ways. Your also gonna be asking malkin to take a hometown discount to stay here we all know he gets the max if he becomes a ufa. Your last point about sid signed for 12 years sounds really bad but ya i think for this year u make sure malkin get the better of the wingers and pp position. Next year if malkin signs then u do whats best for the team.
