    Default Malkin

    Seems like the Pens offense has been in a funk since the Crosby went down, and also since the arrival of Iginla. Would it be wise to trade Malkin for a couple of PPG wingers and hope for the best with my other 3 C's (Datsyuk, Toews, Duchene- Dress 3 each week)? My wingers are in need of a boost (Neal Injury) and this could help win the title (Wingers I'm looking at in return are Zets/Semin/Steen-Dress 6 each week). The flipside is Malkin goes on a tear down the stretch and I look stupid for moving him. Been racking my brain over this all day and could use some advice. Points only.

    Wow, YES! If you can only dress 3 a week, that's a must-trade if you can do that considering that your wingers are also week.
    I really like Semin. Is "Zets" Zetterberg? If so, YES. Steen not so sure.

    Datsyuk, Toews & Duchene will carry you through!

    Depends on your position. If I'm in first I make the trade with someone who won't win in exchange for consistent points. If I'm hoping to rack up a lot of points and challenge for a top spot... I hold on to Malkin and hope he goes on a hot streak.

    Didn't I read somewhere that Semin is injured?

    Thanks for the input guys. We have a tight race for first. Malkin would be moved to a non-contender. I'm worried that with Letang returning, the Pens offense gets kicked back into gear. Our season trade deadline is tonight so I'm looking to shake things up for the stretch but maybe this isnt the answer. Semin has a UBI, but no other word, which is of concern.
