Seabrook is out there, and has been reported on CTL on comcast for over a month by the beat writers that follow the Hawks.
The Hawks depth at centre makes this more and more a possibility.

These are two of the most over hyped trade chips in recent memory with fans from both sides beliving both to fetch more than they might possibly be worth, considering cap restrictions.

What this does for;

Hawks- Gives them balance down the middle, with a player who could possibly give the Hawks three of the best defensive centres in the league.Making three balanced scoring lines with defensive responsability good enough to cover up for the weak, weak defensive players the Hawks do have (Kane, Campbell)

Penguins- Gives them a tough defenseman who could move into the top pairing effortlessly, providing grit and a decent shot on the power play.Special teams suddenly upgrade with Seabs on the PK.And a respected leader in the dressing room.
So the Pens deal Whitney for Kunitz and Tangradi and then turn around and deal Staal for Seabrook? I like Seabrook alot better than Whitney but I don't see it happening. If Staal gets dealt, the Pens will acquire another top 6 winger imo.
