Guess you can't have it all, but puck distribution is vital. Plus, I still question his level of fire and determination in games that don't matter...because ALL games matter. Even Pens fans would have to agree that he seems disengaged at times during the regular season.

Zajac...I like that. I also like Derek Roy.

Does NJD have any incentive whatsoever (or pressing need) that would make possible the movement of Zajac?
I would kinda disagree. Sometimes he doesn't look all that interested in playing offense but his defensive game was always up to par. That is one thing that Pens fans have to thank Therrien for: he created maybe the best defensive center in the NHL. Whether or not he will ever be able to translate his offensive skills is debatable but it would still take a lot from a team to get him from the Pens.
