Again, not saying I believe this rumor for one second, but if we are looking for an explanation as to why Pitt would trade Malkin, perhaphs there is something they know that the rest of us don't. Maybe they have had some indication from Malkin or his agent that he will not sign with the Penguins. It's a strectch I know, but it does give an answer to the 'why' of this whole thing.
