I don't want to hijack the thread here, but I also think this is an interesting concern pertaining to the OP. Should the OP even be considering trading Malkin and if so what should be the goals?
In any trade if you can gain more than what you lose, or deal from a position of strength and fill a weakness without losing more than what you would gain isn't it worth it?
Also, if a trade is considered equal from your perspective, i.e. in a typical week you think your stats wouldn't change in any category if you did the trade, would it be better to have those stats come from one elite producer or multiple players? Wouldn't it be less risky from multiple players?
Idk, just some thoughts I had as I read eric's reply. Maybe someone could shed some light on this to determine if the OP should even be dealing Malkin in the first place.
