What part of P-A-C-K-A-G-E did you stumble on?

I'd tell anyone that wants to give up their #1D and goalie of the future for a forward that they're an absolute moron, but keep going on about what is and is not a 'pipedream'.

Actually the Pens we unlucky to get him...they finished last and lost the lottery draft. Had they won they would have Crosby and Ovechkin in their lineup today.

But Malkin is a nice consolation prize.

Jeeze, people put waaaaaay too much stock into "present" trends.

Price IMO is worth a whole lot in a transaction. Offering Markov and Price alone should be close to a deal. I can't believe the pitches I heard here.


Anyway, why trade for Malkin when we could have Cindy in 2013 for free?


Oh and for the "what have you done for me lately" gang, Crosby is still up there with Ovechkin and Malkin, I'll be LMAO in 2-3 years when trends will be reversed again.

I want Malkin over Sidney. I'd pretty much gut the team for him. Price wouldn't be in the deal, because Pens fans seem to be pretty satisfied with Fleury.

Well a Hab fan started a thread like this in our forum, so it made me curious to find out what other Habs fans thought about it.

It would never happen of course, sorry for wasting your time.

Hell, I still think Crosby's better.

Case and point: watch the highlights last night vs. the Rangers.

The only reason I might take Malkin over Crosby if, god forbid there was a dispersal draft or something, is that Malkin seems less prone to skating through a wall and blowing out his knee.

As to the trade proposal. Honestly, I don't think it could happen, even if he were available. Montreal would need to either gut the team or move Price and while on a 1 to 1 ratio, Malin may be relatively "better" at his position, I'd argue Price is far more important because he's a goalie. If you need any more of a cautionary tale, see case Senators, Ottawa.

There is nothing wrong with having a reasonable educated discussion. Dont apologize for anyone regarding wasting their time, thats what headlines are for. Besides if time is that precious to them they shouldnt be here in the first place.

That being said, if Malkin was ever on the block here is what I see going down:

To Pitts:
Markov, Higgins, Pleks, Hamrlik/Subban, Halak (good back up for Fleury). 2 first rounders

To Montreal:

Malkin, Gonchar

Oh jesus, you just reminded me of the salary cap!

This one might actually balance out, at a glance, at least. The other ones were likely all sending too much cap to Pittsburgh.

But practically speaking, as far as "now" is concerned, Gonchar/Markov is a lateral move. Thus, the only things they get in their lineup this year are Higgins/Pleky vs. Malkin. Not an upgrade for a team seeking a cup.

If Pittsburgh were rebuilding, this would work. They would need on ice assets equal or greater than Malkin, plus prospects to make up for his potential.

Malkin carried his team last year when Crosby went down. Of course, it coincided with the brilliance of Conklin, but he did carry it.

Price has still yet carried this team, and doesn't look very sharp at the moment.

Problem with Price is I feel all the hype around got to him, I think he feels he's already a proven star and sometimes forget he actually has to keep working at it.
Many call it nonchalance, but I think it's cockiness, as ''yea, bounces were bad tonight, bad games happen, I'll bounce back cuz im the best'' type thing..

lol..I might be pissed though because he looked like crap in his games back including the ASGs.

I do agree he is more injury prone, and also a bit less physical, yet I'd still rather have Crosby because of his leadership qualities and also seems like the kinda guy who would easily cope with the pressure in Montreal.


Altho, I wasn't condoning gutting the team to make the move. I wouldn't do it. Let's just be patient with what we have. It seems that people are too eager to have the most dominating team, they can't see that the building progress is still ongoing and will continue on for many years.

What??? He didn't look like crap in the ASG!! Maybe the rookies game, but he had the most breakaways and two-on-ones to face. His players played like crap. As for the ASG, he was the goalie who allowed the fewest goals and was 2nd or 3rd best for save % among all 6 goalies.

You can't compare the way the two players carried their teams to evaluate their price. They play at extremely different positions, and usually goalies aren't at Price's level at this age, this tells a lot about his potential.
