Evgeni Malkin To The Florida Panthers Makes No Sense

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ opening-round exit from the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs sparked speculation of possible roster changes. All options short of trading captain Sidney Crosby and goaltender Matt Murray are reportedly under consideration.

Phil Kessel and Kris Letang are the notables most often mentioned as possible trade candidates. Of late, however, center Evgeni Malkin also became the subject of recent media trade chatter.

Malkin netted 72 points in 68 games this season. Nevertheless, the 32-year-old center faced criticism for his overall performance and attitude. That gave rise to suggestions a Malkin trade could be among their offseason options.
