I can understand why Pitt would want to trade Malkin after his dissapearing act. With a new ownership et al the team would be more attractive to buy without Russian Mob Links...they are going to be all over this kid (if they aren't already what with the Prison Themed Restaurant and all).

Malkin is in a world of trouble right now. Someone in Russia is going to want to make an example of him and make it hurt for him.

Samsonov and Kovalev seem to know the right people and might be able to help Malkin out.

I could also imagine that any trade of Malkin could be with the blessing of the Casino group to keep the Russian mob out of Pittsburgh.
