1. Roberta Luongo, 2. Evgney Malkin, 3. Zach Parise The first guy will yield almost nothing in return due to his long-term guaranteed contract and that he appears to be on a career slide (downhill). A 3rd or 4th round draft pick plus maybe a younger #3 or #4 d-man might be all it takes to bring Lui aboard.... Malkin, on the other hand might yield a passel of draft picks and players. For those who think Pittsburgh would be crazy to trade the best player in the world - THINK AGAIN? As long as Crosby stays in Pittsburgh, Malky will be the #2 guy in that town. Malkin would look good in a place like Vancouver and the NUcks would love to acquire Malkin but lets not get silly. The Pens would need to get Cory Schneider, Kesler & Burrows plus a couple draft picks for Malkin, maybe taking on Five-Hole Fleury to consumnate this humungous trade. On the other hand, Pittsburgh might feel they're OK with Fleury in net and focus on landing some goodies from a lower level team like Edmonton - - - - just imagine what Edmonton might part with to get a superstar of Malkin's bearing in their camp. Perhaps this year's #1 pick, plus Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and a responsible defensive defenseman. Any thoughts? Finally, Zach Parise is simply a free agent. Will he be re-signed? Is he too expensive? Does a low end team like Wpg. have funds to acquire the lad? Probably not, but I suspect Minnesota might, if not Minny, then St. Loo.
