You would think the long term deal he just did would end these awful proposals.

lol leafs

I don't really think there is any reasonable combination of leafs players that would get them Malkin. Like Weber for Malkin is something that I could realistically see the Penguins doing but they don't want quantity for Malkin. Reilly will probably be a good player but Phaneuf has minimal value to the pens.

Teams also don't tend to trade a player the caliber of Malkin in his prime when they've already got him locked up for several years and don't have financial issues to deal with.

So, if no team wants to give up something like that for Malkin, then the Pens will just have to keep him. Somehow, I doubt that idea is distressing to Penguins' management or Pens' fans.

Especially one who has an injury history.

Only way Pitts trades Malkin anyways is if they can't make him work under the cap (which they most likely could), and in that scenario he wouldn't fetch something like that ^
Here's the thing - the Pens are not in that scenario. So of course any Pens fan is going to ask for the moon. We don't want to give him up, the team doesn't want to give him up and he doesn't want to leave. Yet, for some reason, we get constant Malkin proposals on these boards where other teams' fans seem to get incensed that we're not interested in trading him.

Look, his value to us is higher than his value to you (as evidenced by what you're willing to trade for him vs what we're willing to accept). This always ends up the case, so I don't know why this surprises anyone at this point when we respond this way.

It's truly gotten ridiculous - I'm starting to wonder if it's just blatant trolling at this point.

not for the Pens. the Leafs take that deal and run. they upgrade their 1C MASSIVELY AND they unload a lousy UFA contract and all they have to add is a top D prospect (which is the ABSOLUTE LAST THING the Pens need right now) and a late 1st?

it's terrible for the Pens, much like 99.99999999999999999% of all Malkin proposals anyway.

i love Malkin and all but the cost is too great and there is no way I'd want that contract on my team. We already have a stupid length/cost contract with Clarkson.

I don't want Phaneuf in Pittsburgh to be honest. Never been a big fan of his game.

Kadri+ Rielly+ Kessel + 1st

Leafs most prob say no and Geno isn't for sale anyways
