Gilbert is a capable puck moving defenseman, but the Pens have enough of those in Gonchar, Letang, and Goligoski. What the Pens need is some secondary scoring to go along the likes of Malkin, Crosby, and Kunitz.

I think Gagner + pick for Stall would do it.
What about just Gagner for Staal. Staal has proven more in his career but call it a hunch but i think they will turn out to be comparable players down the road. As well the little I know of Pittsburgh is that theres a sentiment that Staal might not be living up to potential based on his position in the pecking order. Unless he could move to wing it might be best to trade him. As for Gagner the sophomore slump is nothing to be worried about. I'm not a fan of either team so don't beat me up about something I don't know very well.
