Poni would be a great addition to the Pens.
He's always working, is very defensively responsible. Earlier in the season when the Leafs were really bad he was leading the team in +/-, and for a while was our only positive +/- player.
He'll stand in front of the net, go behind it and dig in the corners.
Not physical in the sense he'll initiate the hits, but he is not afraid to use his 6'4 220 frame to his advantage.
I think Tangradi for Poni would be too much, as would Depres, although the Leafs lack defensive prospects aside from Blacker.
Caputi would maybe be a good alternative coming back the other way. Toronto native, power forward who goes to the net, exactly what Burke covets.
