Edmonton writer says Pens should trade 71 for Gaborik

Postby cs6687 on Sun Oct 05, 2008 11:26 am

:roll: :?: :roll: :?: :shock:

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

If the Minnesota Wild don’t want to give winger Marian Gaborik more than Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin ($8.7 million a year) in a seven- or eight-year extension, they could always consider trading a star for a star.

Here’s one wildcat trade possibility: Gaborik to Pittsburgh for Malkin because the Penguins are very weak on the wing.

That would be akin to Dany Heatley for Marian Hossa, pretty rare stuff in this league where quality usually gets dealt for quantity.

Re: From the same writer than says Satan can replace Hossa...

So by giving up Malkin for a more expensive winger, we will somehow be better off?

Heatly to Ottawa = 0 cups
Hossa to Atlanta = 0 cups

I'm convinced! :lol:

This guy is insane.

Malkin is going to LA. Can't make this trade.

I'd rather have Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar.

An bsolutely egregious piece of journalism.

It would take a hell of a lot more than Gaborik, who is signed for just one more year, to get our 23 year old superstar who is locked up here for 6 more years.

I'd rather have no one for Malkin. There is no equal trade for Evgeni Malkin when you speak of a 1 for 1 type of deal.

I agree.

And to think that they could get Malkin for him is just insane. I'd be skeptical about even giving them Staal for Gaborik.

Yes, you're right. An injury prone star who wants as much (maybe more) as Crosby and Malkin. That's probably not going to happen. As for trading Staal for Gaborik. I would never do that simply because down the line you're going to have to trade Gaborik or Malkin just to try to fit under the cap. As of now, we have a rare situation in which we can lock up Crosby, Malkin, and Staal under the cap. As opposed to Crosby and Malkin or Crosby and Gaborik getting fit under the cap. Having Staal, Crosby, and Malkin over Crosby/Gaborik or Crosby/Malkin is much better quality-wise and quantity-wise.

The Edmonton Journal has some crappy writers. First the guy says Satan will be better defensively than Hossa, then some boob says they should trade Malkin for Gaborik. I think it's legitimately unfair that these guys get paid to write their opinions and I don't.

Yes, but we will be lucky if LA accepts. Malkin's shortcomings have been exposed on the point. We should be happy if we can unload him to Carolina for Joseph Melichar. They would be doing us a favor, but we gave them Ron Francis, so they owe us.

When I was growing up in Edmonton I used to expect this kinda of article (and the Hossa / Satan) from the Sun not the Journal.


Also I believe Matheson had Lemieux when he retired behind Gretzky, Orr, Howe and Messier as greatest ever.

Same source that said HOssa doesn't back check or play defense? Even if not, "the cradle of hockey" is breaking with crap like this.

I hope we unload him to LA soon because any day now he's going to sign with the Russian league.

This.

The trade would be Staal/Goligoski for Gaborik/something else.

Back when the rumors of Malkin to LA were started, I said that was the stupidest trade idea I have ever heard.

I stand corrected. This is the stupidest trade idea I have ever heard.

It is obviously a silly proposal...Pens aren't moving Malkin...

As much as I would love Gaborik on Sid's wing. You don't move Malkin to make that happen...BTW, putting Staal at 2nd line center just makes the 2nd line that much weaker..He is anything but a playmaker...

Going on year 3 for Staal...
