I would be interested in seeing a package that Malkin would be traded for that would: a) be fair value for the Pens; b) make sense for the team trading for him and not totally destroy their depth; and c) make more sense for the Pens in terms of cap savings.

In other words: not a trade of Malkin for picks and prospects no matter how good and not "Malkin to Edmonton for Yakupov, Eberle, RNH and whoever else they've got on a cheap contract" because why would Edmonton do that, but highly skilled players on cheap contracts that bring the same skill that Malkin does yet don't hurt the Pens in terms of cap and don't destroy the other team's depth. I don't think such a deal exists. You're never going to get fair value for Malkin unless you take on considerably more salary in a quality for quantity trade, and then what's the point?
