AT THE FAN: THE PROS AND CONS OF TRADING A SUPERSTAR



The future of Evgeni Malkin in Pittsburgh has been a hot topic of late. But what kind of return should the Penguins expect if they ever deal him? 

I'm not proposing any deals for Malkin in this article, because I'm firmly in the camp that the Pens should keep him. What I'm doing with this piece is taking a look at some of the bigger trades of superstars in recent history across all four major team sports. Why did they happen? What happened to the team that traded the superstar? What happened to the team that acquired the superstar?

After looking at some of these deals, it certainly makes you think twice about the future of Geno in a Pens uniform. Ultimately, you will be the judge, as we have the ever-present poll wrapping up the article.

For the discussion portion of this argument, I'll be hashing it out with Seibel and Starkey at 3:20 today. It's 93.7 on your dial and 937thefan.cbslocal.com on your browser.

you make it sound like there is a big outcry from the fans to trade malkin, but just like the support of MAF it is all media created. Just irresponsible writing, and opinions. Creating problems where there isnt one.

I thought at first Don was talking about the debate whether or not the Bucs should trade Doumit...

Malkin must stay if this team wants to continue to be a dominant force.
