What scares me is that R.J. Umberger seems like the perfect salve to soothe the aches of those in Pitt over losing their first overall pick. He's a Pitt native, they've wanted him in the past, he was a first rounder projecting to be a good NHL player, and presumably the Rangers could sign him then trade him as part of the package, picking up salary. Granted, we got him in trade for a UFA, but now that we have him it would be nice to keep him

Still, I can see Umberger being the main piece of a trade for the right to pick Ovechkin. If the deal were, say, Umberger, Poti (+ salary paid & cash), 2 2nd rounders, would you do it?
