Malkin for Kovalchuk and Re-Signing Sykora

The Fourth Period is reporting that negotiations between the Penguins and Petr Sykora have started and that Shero is looking to keep him because of the chemistry between him and Malkin.

Sykora will be a free agent at the end of this season on July 1st.

Eklund has "been chasing this rumor since last night as many of you know..."
Updated: I am allowed to report now that the deal involves, "top line talent" going each way.

While there have been rumors that the Thrashers would like Malkin for Kovalchuk +, I am not going to say that this is the deal EXACTLY as I am hearing it. In fact I am not yet comfortable confirming or denying either players involvement.
Typical Eklund; all I can say to this one -- I DON'T THINK SO!!

Surely they will not trade Malkin, they need him to be part of the team!!!

If they do this one, it will be young guys, and probably some baby d-men.

Malkin's not going anywhere. He's way to valuable. To them, he's the only one producing. Right now.
