Joe Vitale
 
OK Pittsburgh Fans...What would you want for Joe Vitale and what are your needs?

Flat Stanley 03-04-2013 03:00 PM

Another one of those "more valuable to the team than the trade market" type of players. We drafted him in the 7th round in 2005, he's a good 4th line center, not really a trade-able player.

Captain Hook 03-04-2013 03:00 PM

^ Agreed. He's similar to Engelland in that he has more value to us than he will in trade. We need a top 2 line winger and maybe a big shutdown D-Man. Vitale won't fetch that. He'd probably get us a middle to late round pick. Not worth moving him for that.

Would you do it for a second round pick?

Yes.

No thanks. The 2nd round pick just doesn't help us on the ice right now. The value isn't bad, in fact, you might be overpaying. But I think I speak for most Pens fans when I say, "thanks, but no thanks" ...there are plenty around that do a lot more talking than me though, I'm sure they'll be here any minute...

Yes, don't see why another team would give up a 2nd for him.

Agreed. Especially Edmonton since they'll probably have a fairly high 2nd.

Or...maybe I was just speaking for myself. Ahem, well then...

Personally, I wouldn't take that much speed out of the bottom six. It's "average at best" speed from Cooke, Glass, Adams and Jeffrey...makes me a little uneasy just to get a draft pick. A draft pick that the fan base will bemoan anyway when it's exchanged for another PMD...

I know what you mean. But he is a 4th line center and that's an easy position to fill for a GM. If a team offered you a 2nd round pick for a 4th line center, I think you accept the trade.

The Penguins could replace him in house right now, or look elsewhere on the free agent market.

I do like Vitale, and wouldn't trade just to trade him, but a 2nd round pick, you can use that on a higher quality asset or use it to trade up in the 1st round.

Two Joe Vitale's.

Buzzkiller 03-04-2013 03:43 PM

There just simply isn't anything any team could offer that would equal or even come close to the value of the mighty Joe Vitale.

as a member of the Cult of Joe Vitale, i'd be remiss if i didn't chime in here with a big "no way" when it comes to trading him.

hyperbole and joking aside, he's worth more to the Pens than they could get for him in a trade. he hustles his ass off every shift. he won't score points nearly as often as other players but he works hard whenever he's called on.
