Yes, obviously that is what each and every GM in the league is trying to do, however, there are so many variables and intangibles that go into the decision making process of a trade. Often times decisions are made to move conflicting egos, to shake up the culture of a team, somebody was **** somebody's wife on the team... the list can go on and on.

Yes, Malkin can be moved. This whole attitude of Malkin can only be moved for Ovechkin is extremely short sighted and small minded. God, just look at the Pens blueline and start making a list...

When everyone's healthy, the Pens blueline is one of the best in the league. And Pittsburgh would be rather stupid to trade a player of Malkin's calibre to compensate for Gonchar and Whitney's absence when Whits is scheduled to return in a couple months time.
