Phil Posted April 30, 2019 Share Posted April 30, 2019 1. Pittsburgh will never rebuild as long as Sidney Crosby is around. But defeat does not sit well in that corner of Pennsylvania and there is need for renovations. You can understand the eye-rolling that comes with Evgeni Malkin trade rumours, but several other clubs believe there is something to this ? that, at the very least, the Penguins are determining the feasibility of the idea. GM Jim Rutherford declined comment, but hinted at it in a couple of local interviews last week. Malkin has a no-move clause, yet the buzz is that he?s taking some time to decompress and think about a.) if he?d agree and b.) where he?d agree to go to. That would be a short list, maybe the Rangers and Florida? The bigger hurdle might be Mario Lemieux, with The Athletic?s Josh Yohe reporting sources have told him Lemieux is against the idea. For the Penguins to consider this, the return must be good enough to keep them in contention now. https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/31-thoughts-penguins-big-decisions-include-malkin/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
