rockjngo makes a good point, although price of trading for Malkin would be very high, his cap hit will lighten up the trade value by a bit (just by a bit). How many consistent 50-goal scorers were there since Gretzky? hes likely going to drop in production and will not be worth $9.5mil in just few years... yet his contract is set for another 9 years.

Since we have too many centres and a bit of excess D-man (including what we have in the prospect pool) we can afford to give up some of them especially when Pitt needs quality d-men. Here's a fair deal:

To Montreal:
Malkin

To Pittsburgh:

Galchenyuk + Subban + Beaulieu


Malkin would still triumph in terms of cap hit but thats a pretty fair deal you gotta say. You could throw in some first and second rounders on either sides but this is pretty solid in terms of needs of both sides. because then our centers would be: Malkin
Plek (Eller on his wing)
Desharnais
White

and D would look like:

Markov - Emelin
Gorges - Diaz
Tinordi - Bouillon
Thrower

I still wouldn't do it tho prob. Just because I want Subban to be a lifer in MTL. We just need to get rid of DD and Eller in the next couple years so that our 4 centers can be: Galchenyuk, Plekanec, De LaRose, White. We can't keep Eller because Galch and Plek will most likely be our top 6 center and he's aiming to be a top 6 (like the J. Staal fiasco)
