This might make sense if both teams were in need of a major shakeup. But they aren't, so it makes no sense.

It's not just production... Malkin is obviously injury proned. I'd prefer a healthy Kane who plays nearly 82 games, compared to an oft injured Malkin that plays less than 50...

Malkin's only played less than 50 once.

How can he be a top 5 player in the league with a bad year? That makes no sense. Malkin has had 2 bad years in a row, so no, he's no longer a top 5 player in the league. When he's on his game he can be, but again, he hasn't been for 2 years.

And saying Kane will never be a top 5 player is hilarious. Just like Malkin, any one of the players you listed are capable of drop offs, and Kane's still only 22.

I love these type of posts. As little as three years ago when the Sedins were like 5 years older then Kane and if you said they would become top 5 type players everyone would have though you were high. So Kane could become a top five players he is only 22 years old came into the NHL as a very small guy who nobody thought was physically mature enough for the NHL at the time. Real little guys like Kane usually take longer to develop. But do to Kane having world class hands, vision, and hockey IQ he has excelled at an earlier age then expected. With all the reports that he is still getting bigger and stronger, when he finally hits a higher physical statue I would not be surprised at all if he put up a lot of seasons over 100.

It wouldn't be a bad trade, but it's pointless and I don't see either team doing it.

It wouldn't be a bad trade, it would be a terrible trade from a Pens perspective.

Two years ago if Malkin stayed healthy, he would have been over 90 points again... which is more than Kane has ever got. Pretty good for a "bad" year.

LOL at the Hawks fans who say No from "their" standpoint. Any GM in the league would give up Kane + Bolland from Malkin. The problem is... to get Geno - You have to give up about 3 Kane's. Last time I checked -- You only have Kane and Hossa to offer us. (sorry Toews is way overrated)

Yeah, that's ridiculous. I like Kane a lot, but he's no Malkin. Malkin as a rookie was about as good as Kane's ever going to get. Kane just doesn't have the talent to put up a season like Malkin's 2007-08 or 2008-09. If Malkin is healthy this season i fully expect him to re-establish himself as a top 3 player in the NHL.

Bylsma expects him at a camp, and his summer training has been encouraging. Needless to say, I'm really excited for his return.

Having a guy 6'8" 258lbs fall on your leg isn't being injury prone.

To the pens fans who think this is a bad deal, you should probably get your heads checked out. The penguins get a steal. Kane AND Bolland for the injured (well now "better") Malkin, pittsburgh would have a world class winger to play with Crosby and a good 3rd line centre. Chicago has absolutely no reason to do this "deal" because they gain another centre, while getting rid of Toews' best winger.

I don't think you could find a single pens fan who would do this deal. A steal...good one.

Look at the players who are arguably top 5, Crosby, Ovechkin, Stamkos, Datsyuk, and malkin outside of Datsyuk none of those guys are dropping off anytime soon, they are all under 25

The Penguins could move Malkin to wing and he'd still be immediately better than Kane. The Pens also have the NHL's best third line center currently in Jordan Staal..No thanks.

If the Pens were going to trade Malkin, I can think of a lot of other teams that have what the Pens are looking for rather than Chicago...
