[Proposal] Malkin to Preds

Recommended Posts

I realized part way through doing this that Nashville has to basically resign every forward, so flash forward to early next season. Also I based this off of the Nash trade.
After a disappointing playoffs:

3rd 2016

1st 2016

NSH Lines:
Neal - Malkin - Forsberg
Wilson - Ribero - Moses
Watson - Jarnkrok - Stalberg I'm guessing they wont resign Cullen.
Nystrom - Gaustad - Sissons/ Beck

Josi - Weber
Ekholm - Jones
Bartley - Alm (?)


PIT Lines:
Kunitz - Crosby - Hornqvist
Perron - Fisher - Smith
Comeau - Sutter - Dupuis
Spaling - Lapierre - Bennet/ Winnik

Maatta - Letang
Pouliot - Ellis
Dumolin - Cole


Say if NSH were to add a 2nd (2017) would Pittsburgh consider adding Bennet it?

Fisher is a UFA, no?

Josi and Wilson/Smith would start the discussion. Boosts Pittsburgh defense, gives them a guy to plug the top 6 hole, but Nashville still comes way out on top. Late first rounders aren't worth much - it is hard to gauge. They might try to pry Forsberg, but for a low income team like Nashville they are better of building around 2 or 3 good players vs a superstar.

Josi, Smith and 2016 1st for Malkin may get it done. Could see them giving up more.

For info, GM Poile recently said something like: "There is no one I would trade Josi (or Weber) for. They are that good". See the Tennessean of a few days back for the exact quote.

GM Rutherford has also confirmed that the Penguins will be keeping both Crosby and Malkin.
