the upside for the Pens...increase their chances for Crosby by making them worse right now and adding a 2nd top pick. Worst case scenario they add a Brule, Johnson, or Ryan.
downside for the Pens...two proven players for none....
Probably about to get slammed. Is this close in value?
Stone has never been projected as anything but third liner. Maybe a good one, but still a grinder. Whitney was only a high pick because it was the worst draft in memory. Since then, he has not layed especially well and his stock has dropped signnificantly.
The Caps would be getting fleeced, even in a year without Crosby.
