I am reading between the lines and want to think Shero said Malkin is available...

What I gathered from his Press Conference is that he no longer committed to the 3-center mold. I also get the feeling Malkin is the odd man out...

I disagree with this so so so so so so so much.... and I cringe at trading the best player in the world.... but maybe there is something I don't know or cap reasons

What did he say at the press conference to lead you to think this? I didn't see/hear it, so just curious.

Kesler, Edler, Schroeder and a 1st for Malkin and Michalek/Martin?

This move is for the better. Malkin will get ~top pairing D, a top quality prospect and a top 6 forward.

Ahead of Okposo, Niederreiter and 2 picks?

Kesler is a top 6 forward with a wicked shot and is a Selke winner to compliment Staal, Edler is a top pairing D, a medium-to-good prospect ready to play wing or center as needed, and a lower pick.

He basically said that changes are going to happen this offseason.... HOWEVER

He said he likes the coaching staff ~ no changes there okay...
He said he likes the defense ~ No changes there... WHICH IS A MISTAKE
He said he is no longer committed on the 3 center mold ~ He isn't trading Crosby. That leaves Jordan or Geno....


There is much more that leads me to believe Geno is on the block but its 1:30am and I'm tired

Staal is obviously the odd man out.

If its worth anything I think Malkin said his least favorite team to play is the Islanders... he said something to the effect of "**** man they go balls out against us"

Correct. I don't know why anyone would jump to the conclusion that Geno is the one that's on his way out.

Exactly.

I'd also take what Shero says with a grain of salt. He hates his D right now. I don't care what he says. He's not going to admit it because he's leveraging for deals. He'll act like he still likes those guys to drive the price up if/when he moves them.

It's hard to know what he means by saying he's not committing to the 3 center model. It could just mean one of those guys will play more wing going forward. It could mean one of them will be traded. The obvious guy is Staal and not Malkin. It's obvious because Staal and the Pens have sort of reached a crossroads with him outgrowing his role and nearing UFA next summer. It may be time to move him along.

I just listened to the Press Conference... He didn't say this, at all. He said he wants them all here and wants to do what he can to keep all three, but it depends on the new CBA.

Because no one good has ever come out of the late first round right? Fact is, any GM in the league would take Kesler and Edler over kyle freaking okposo and the Isles 4th overall. Players bust from 4th overall all the time, stop acting like you're guaranteeing a good player with it.

Read through the thread. He said he is unsure about the 3C model for the future. Sure sounds like Malkin is for the taking!

Edit: oh wow! You are the OP...nice thread bud
