"if sidney crosby and alex ovechkin were available what would it take?"
STOP THE STUPID THREADS! i know you can't fix stupid, but have a little common sense here. why would pittsburgh part with malkin now? and two why would inter-division teams help each other out to that degree? oh my offer for crosby is staal montoya prucha and the entire charlotte checkers, stop! stop!
easy buddy, its just a message board, people can post whatever they want to talk about, you don't agree, don't post, don't be so harsh.
Well, I guess that depends where you set your definition of "franchise"... do you want Jagr or Jovanovski ?
And that trade proposal was bad, don't worry.
Staal > Malkin for the Rags right now, our defense is showing it's holes and Staal seems to have barely one and he's only 30 games into his career. Yes, you can say much about him "can't predict this, and that".
Jesus christ... way to split hairs... it REALLY doesnt make any difference in the context of what Im saying...
IF Malkin winds up being Sakic, and IF Staal winds up being Niedermeyer...
I'd still rather have Nieds...
And before some smartass comes in here, OBVIOUSLY I mean Scott.
Actually it really does make a difference in the context of what you were saying because your original statement was that you would take a franchise dman over a franchise lw and as left wingers and centers are not the same thing it changes the meaning of your original statement. How can you even be making comments about Malkin when you dont realise he is a center?
However even if you want to go back and change your original statement to be that you would take a franchise dman over a franchise c then Ill take Mario or Gretzky over your choice of defenseman thanks.
If Malkin turns into Mario and Staal turns into Niedermayer
Id still rather have Malkin, just working on your logic there.
