Malkin's out with two bad tears in his knee and likely needs surgery. If Pittsburgh offers him up for Booth and Frolik in a desperate bid to increase offense down the stretch with both Crosby and Malkin out possibly long-term...do you take it? And I'm talking straight-up deal.
I ask just because I feel the board needs some stirring up
Stillman can definitely play on the second line of a playoff team.
Yes he can but should he really? To me, at this point of his career, he's kinda a tweener winger. Capable scorer still but not quite fast enough. I think ideally he's suited as a top 9 winger who can play some duties on a 2nd line but primarily should be used on a 3rd line but also getting PP time (isnt that what he is on the Panthers?).
He technically hasnt really been on a scoring line this yr for the Panthers and we're more of a pretender than contender for the playoffs. A real playoff contender would be more likely deeper and more talented than the Panthers so I would assume those type of teams would use Stillman in a supplimentary type of scoring role.
