People keep knocking this trade like it's totally insane but the reality is, value wise it's probably pretty close. Pittsburg becomes a much better team immediately and the salary increase is more like 3 mill not 8+.

The reason being Malkin is not yet signed and his cap hit will be similar to Crosby's @ $3.7 mill and in most versions I've seen reported T-Bo's $1.5 mill is coming back to Montreal. The fact is Pittsburg would be a much better team this year if they make this trade.

Don't get me wrong I don't see this trade happening but it's reaaly not as insane as some might think.

Take a look at Pittsburg's line up with and without this trade and you may start to see why it would make sense from their side.
